Some readers have been asking me how I make the carrot flowers, so I made a small tutorial.
(I will add a link to this post on a new (to be created) page which will have more tips on how to pack/decorate Dosirak/Bento)
Carrot flowers are very easy to make, and a great way to decorate your lunch.
- You peel a – fairly thick- carrot and slice it in 5-6 mm slices.
- Cook the slices for 1 min
- I have a special flower cutter (bought mine at Japan Centre, but you can buy them at different shops, see also my page on where to buy Bento products), once the carrot has cooled down a bit, just cut the flowers
- The petals are created / emphasized by cutting out small wedges with a knife
- That’s all!
