    Directions

    1. Stir-fried the finely chopped onion with a bit of butter until fragrant. Mince the ginger and lightly beat the egg. Pat the lotus slices dry with kitchen paper towels. Finely chop the chicken breast, add in stir-fried onion, minced ginger, egg, cornstarch, soya sauce, salt and pepper. Stir vigorously in one direction until the mixture has become thick and elastic.
    2. To make a sandwich, spread the meat mixture onto each 8 lotus root slices, and cover with the rest of lotus root slices. Lightly coat each lotus root sandwich with cornstarch. To fry, set a large deep pan half filled with oil on medium heat until hot. Fry the prepared lotus root sandwiches until both sides lightly golden. Remove, drain and place them in a serving dish.
    3. Stir all the ingredients of the sauce in a small saucepan on low heat until it has thickened. Pour the sauce over the lotus root sandwiches. Serve.
