Vibrant Cucumber Cauldrons ( Vegetable Carvings) recipe - How to make Vibrant Cucumber Cauldrons ( Vegetable Carvings)
Preparation Time:    Cooking Time: Total Time:
Makes 2 cauldrons
2 green or brown cucumber (madras kakri)
- Place the cucumber on a chopping board and cut a cross section of any desired length.
- Cut the top of the sliced cucumber, using a knife so your dip mug can stand on this flattened base.
- Make zigzag marks along the edges of the cucumber using a carving knife.
- 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.
- 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.
- In the smaller piece, carve out a border by taking out a thin layer of the outer skin.
- Now cut triangles along the lower edge.
- Carve a design of your choice in the centre.
- With the help of a scooper, scoop out the insides the cucumber to make a hollow.
- 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.
