6- 1 lotus root, about 100g, peeled, cut into pieces

.: Seasoning :.
[just for reference only]

Group A:
1- 2 tsp pepper salt
2- 1 tsp 5 spices powder
3- 1 tsp of white pepper

5- 1 tsp of paprika powder
6- 1 tsp of cinnamon powder
Group B:
1- 1 tsp pepper salt
2- 1 tsp of white pepper
3- 1/2 cup of flour

.: Steps :.

Dry the ribs well.  Marinade the ribs with Group A seasoning for 15-30 minutes.  Dry the lotus roots.  Marinade with Group B seasoning and put it aside.

Coat evenly the ribs with the flour.  Heat the non-sticky pan with 3 tbsp of oil over medium high heat.  Pan-fry the ribs until one side is brown.  Turn the heat to medium-low.  Turn the ribs to the other side.  Pan-fry it until done.  Put it into sieve over a bowl to drain.  Set it aside.  

3-  Reheat the pan with medium-high heat.  Add in the lotus root.  Stir-fry it with the remaining oil in the pan.  Continue to stir-fry it until it is dried and crispy (about 3-5 minutes). Put it into sieve over a bowl to drain.  Set it aside.

4-  Keep
about 1 tbsp of oil in the pan.  Heat the pan with medium-high heat.  Add in the garlic and onion with 1/3 tsp of salt.  Stir-fry the onion until it is soft.  Add in the green and red pepper along with the pepper salt and white pepper.  Stir-fry all the ingredients for 2 minutes.  Add in the ribs and lotus roots.  Mix it well and dish it up.  Serve it in hot. 

.: Tips :.
1- It will be better if you can deep fried the ribs and the lotus root instead of pan-frying it.
2- Skip the step 4 and its related ingredients if you want it simple.
3- Pepper salt is not the same taste as regular salt.  You can get it in most of the chinese super market.
