Ingredients

1 to 2 green cucumber or cucumber
1 small bitter gourd (karela)
2 lemons
1 small carrot
chopping board
satay sticks
scooper
black and red marker pens
knife

Method
  1. Peel a thin layer from one side of the cucumber using a knife and keep aside.
  2. Place the cucumber on a chopping board with the peeled side facing downwards. Peel another thin layer from the top, keeping one side of the peel intact.
  3. Fasten the open side of the peel to the cucumber with a satay stick.
  4. Attach the peel that you have set aside on top of this peel and press gently. Cut a small triangle from the carrot and attach it on the top of this second peel to make a flag of the boat.
  5. After making the 'sail', scoop out the insides of the cucumber to create a hollow space. Keep aside.
  6. Draw eyes, nose, mouth and moustaches on one side of the lemon with the black marker pen.
  7. Place the bitter gourd on a chopping board and cut a small piece from one end, using a knife.
  8. Attach the bitter gourd piece (hat) on the top of lemon (face) of the sailor, using a toothpick.
  9. Attach the lemon (sailor) onto the opposite side of the flag using another toothpick.
  10. Take another carrot triangle and attach it to one end of a toothpick.
  11. Insert the other end of the cucumber just below the lemon (sailor) to look like an oar.
