    • ‘After the (Lotus) flower has blossomed for a period of time, the flower petals drop from the stem, leaving only the seed pod with golden hairs around it. Then slowly the seed pod develops bigger into what we called ‘lotus fruit’ of about 8-10 cm in diameter. When the fruit is mature, it’s picked up and can be eaten raw. The seeds or nuts inside is the edible part, it’s sweet, crispy and also a little bit bitter from its embryo (the heart of seed).

      The ripe or over mature lotus fruit, the seeds are harder and the bitterness of the embryo increase. In Cambodia, we take this ripe lotus fruit to boil till it soft and serve. We call it ‘Chhouk Sngor’.
