Peel as many potatoes and carrots as you need, and slice 5 mm thick. Make star-shaped cutouts from each slice.
Push the potato star cut-out into the carrot slice and vice versa. Done!!
If you're using these in a hot pot, parboil until they're still firm. If using in a curry or stew, you may want to cook them until they're softer.
Story Behind this Recipe
We had a bunch of potato and carrot decoratons I made for Christmas. They were cute, but I had leftovers, which was a shame. So I thought, if I add them to hot pots or curries, maybe they'll be all eaten up!!
I recommend using boiling potatoes, which won't fall apart easily.
