Spicy diced chicken breast with carrots and lotus roots

We like spicy food with numbing heat. So here’s one we make from time to time. You don’t have to use lotus roots. Carrot itself is good enough. Quoting from Wikipedia,  ‘Lotus roots have been found to be rich in dietary fibervitamin Cpotassiumthiamin,riboflavinvitamin B6phosphoruscopper, and manganese, while very low in saturated fat. And it’s crunchy!
