Lotus root meatballs
Lotus root meatballs are very simple to make and a nice variation on the typical meatballs found in Western dishes. The lotus root pieces give a nice crunchy bite to the meatballs and a little ginger makes it taste fresher. Full recipe below

  • chop a little bit of spring onion fine and add
  • also very finely chop a little bit of fresh ginger and add it
  • mix in the minced pork, whole egg
  • add salt, tiny bit of cooking wine (not too much, because it becomes too wet), chicken powder and light soy sauce (tiny bit)
  • add any kind of flour to make the dough a little bit dryer and more sticky
