1 small bitter gourd (karela)

  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.
