Vibrant Cucumber Cauldrons ( Vegetable Carvings) recipe - How to make Vibrant Cucumber Cauldrons ( Vegetable Carvings)

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 2 cauldrons


Things You Will Need
2 green or brown cucumber (madras kakri)
chopping board
carving knife
  1. Place the cucumber on a chopping board and cut a cross section of any desired length.
  2. Cut the top of the sliced cucumber, using a knife so your dip mug can stand on this flattened base.
  3. Make zigzag marks along the edges of the cucumber using a carving knife.
  4. Make a deep cut along the rim from the inner side of the cucumber. This makes it easier to cut out a proper shape later.
  5. Now with the thumb, gently push along the corners so that the triangles detach from the rest of the cucumber to get a neat zig-zag rim.
  6. In the smaller piece, carve out a border by taking out a thin layer of the outer skin.
  7. Now cut triangles along the lower edge.
  8. Carve a design of your choice in the centre.
  9. With the help of a scooper, scoop out the insides the cucumber to make a hollow.
  10. You can make a long cup similarly with a different design and even add a handle using a cucumber slice and toothpicks. Fill the smaller cup with the sauce and the bigger one with some celery and carrot sticks for a healthy snack.
