  7. Transfer this carefully onto a greased plate and cut it into sandal shapes.
  8. To garnish, cut two semi-circle pieces of parboiled carrot such that one small semi-circular shaped carrot piece is placed as a toe and the other slice as the ankle.
  9. Join the two pieces with the help of any parboiled green stalk.
