How to Cut Carrots into Balls
Carrots are a versatile vegetable that can be used in a variety of dishes. Cutting carrots into balls is a great way to add texture and visual appeal to salads, stir-fries, and other dishes. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Preparing the Carrots
Start by washing the carrots thoroughly under running water. Peel off the outer layer of skin with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Cut off the top and bottom ends of each carrot.
Step 2: Cutting the Carrots
Cut the carrots into thin slices, about 1/8 inch thick. Then cut each slice into small cubes, about 1/4 inch square. Finally, roll each cube between your fingers to form a ball shape.
Step 3: Cooking the Carrot Balls
Once you have cut all of your carrots into balls, you can cook them however you like. You can sauté them in oil for a few minutes until they are tender, or you can roast them in the oven at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. You can also add them raw to salads or other dishes.
