Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
- 250g white lotus seed
- 180g fine sugar
- 70g Maltose syrup
- 140g corn oil
Soak the lotus with water in a bowl until soft, remove the lotus core and put the lotus into the pressure cooker. Pour enough clear water in the pressure cooker and cook it for 30 minutes. (The water is just enough to cover the lotus seeds.)
Make lotus seeds into the mud with a cooking machine or a broken machine. (Add water properly and the mud should not be too thick or too thin.) Use a sieve to filter out the hard crust.
Transfer the lotus seed mud into the non-stick pan and stir fry under middle-low heat.
Pour the oil, sugar and maltose syrup into the lotus seed paste and mix well. (The color of lotus root filling made by dark maltose syrup will be darker.)
Stir-fried lotus seeds paste until it completely mixes together and hard to separate. Serve it as a dessert filling.
