Many Japanese dishes use ingredients cut into shapes. Here's the correct way to do it. 


  • One large carrot cut to about  4 to 5 cm length from the top so it doesn't  taper. 

Cutting Method

  1. Cut away the top
  2. Place the carrot vertically on the chopping board and slice it into sections about 1 cm thick.
  3. Place the pieces flat on the board and slice it into 2 mm-wide strips.
