  lotus root (Chinese)

 

Thailand

The root of the lotus is edible and also a health drink is made from it. There are two kinds available in Thailand, that is the Chinese lotus root seen here, and the Thai lotus root (fig.).

 

The Chinese variety is rather bulbous, with about three to four separate segments and hollow tube-like canals on the inside. When cut up, the slices are circular with holes.
