In separate bowls soak the dried tofu, shiitake, maitake and lotus root in warm water to cover for 20 minutes. Reserve soaking water from shiitake, maitake and lotus root. Squeeze out the soaking water from the dried tofu, cube tofu and discard soaking water. Chop the dried lotus root and mushrooms. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet or saucepan. Sauté the garlic and shallots for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, dried tofu and dried lotus root. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add the rice and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
