Papaya Basket/Fruit Basket/Fruit Carving/Kids special
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and now ready to face a busy and full of festive week ahead. Tomorrow is Navmi and day after tomorrow is Dusshera, a festive to celebrate- Burai par acchai ki jeet ( victory of good over evil), kids are all set to buy teer kamaan (bow-arrow) and lots of other toys to enjoy festivals in there own way. So now to the today's recipe. in past few days i am searching for something to make fruits and vegetable attractive. So that kids attract towards them to eat.
So i have gone through so many sites and saw so many food and vegetable carving and got amazed to see so many shapes and design made out of it. So first time i tried to make a basket. I chose Papaya as its big and easily available these days. I tried simple design as it was first time i was trying my hands on it and don't want to spoil the fruit. while i was done with the basket my son came in the kitchen and in spite of all efforts i was unable to stop him from shouting and telling whole family (neighbor also hehehe) that i made a basket out of papaya. So the moral of the story is if there are kids in your house then nothing is secrete heheheh. Try is out guys your kids will love it.
Papaya-a big one
Chopped fruits- any of your favorite like grapes, orange etc.
Take a big papaya
Peal it without cutting
