1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
2 tablespoons rice powder
4 cloves garlic ( minced )
2 green onion stalks ( finely chopped )
1 green chili ( finely chopped )
For Szechuan Salt Pepper Seasoning::
2 tablespoons kosher or sea salt ( any coarse salt will do )

Slice lotus root into thin slices along the diagonal. Use only very fresh lotus root, so it does not dry out while roasting in the oven.
