12-18 inches lotus root, about 3-4 segments
vegetable oil for frying
coarse sea salt

Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a pan to 300 degrees.

While the oil is heating, trim rough ends off of each lotus root segment and peel off the skin of the lotus roots with a peeler.

Thinly slice the lotus roots using a slicer (mandoline).

Gently slide sliced root into the hot oil and separate with tongs.

Chips are done when it turns slightly brown and is crunchy.

When done, drain the chips on paper towels and salt generously while still warm.
