    If you are using baby carrots, you do not need to dice them. However, if you are suing larger ones, you can dice them up into cubes to moderate sizes.

    The first step is to soften up the carrots. Pour water into the saucepan. Bring it to boil. Add in the carrots with a little salt and boil them with the lid on so that they go tender in the steam. Cook for around six minutes or when you feel they have gone tender yet are crunchy.
