Lotus seed

Lotus stem and its bud harvested from a lake or a pond.

The seeds of a lotus flower are commonly used by the Chinese as medicine and as ingredient for Chinese dishes. The seeds are widely available in it dried form or it can be peeled off from its bud eaten raw as snack. It is highly nutritious and nice to chew upon because of its crunchiness and its refreshing sweetness (light).

The same seed is used to make lotus paste in Chinese pastries like moon cake.
Peel off the skin before eating it, do try.
