Green Lotus Seed Head 2

Method of preparation:

Choose a fully green lotus seed head.
Break to reveal yellowish green lotus seeds inside.
Remove the outer green rubbery skin of each green lotus seed to reveal the white lotus seeds.
Repeat the same with the remaining green lotus seeds.
Sometimes if the seed is ripe, you might have to remove the bitter tasting germ of the seed from inside of the white lotus seed.
Use the obtained white lotus seeds as a snack or as a garnish.

Notes: Make sure the seeds are fully developed inside the green lotus seed head else you won’t find any seed except the white flesh.
