If you’re looking to add an authentic touch to your usual Japanese dinner spread then the lotus root kinpira stir fry is the one to try. The recipe simply calls for the lotus root to be sliced and fried in sesame oil which bring out its marvellously crunchy texture and earthy flavour. As well as being highly nutritious, this versatile side dish just about goes well with any Japanese meals.
