If you do not have weighing scales, you can use a teacup to measure out the ingredients.
tbs = tablespoon (next size up from a teaspoon or equal to three teaspoons)
tsp = teaspoon (5ml)
Selection and preparation of the vegetables
Sort the vegetables and discard any unripe, over-ripe or damaged ones. Wash in clean cold water
and drain.
Peel the onions and carrots. Chop the onions, cabbage and capsicum into small pieces about
5cm long. Do not use the core of the cabbage.
It is best to use a stainless steel knife to prevent marking the flesh of the fruit and vegetables,
but if you do not have one, use a knife with a clean sharp blade.
Grate the carrots using the large holes on the grater.
