How to get ridged food shapes (Zig Zag)

Are you hosting a get together or party? Make it super fun by giving your meals a very nice ridged shape. I recently came across this zig zag cutter and i found it extra useful in giving meals that extra unique look. You could try it with fruits, vegetables and even pastries. I got it at the local market for just 200 Naira only and at the end of this post is a picture of the cutter. Here are some few ideas to get you started.

1. Ridged Plantain

Get your plantain whether fried, boiled or grilled looking really good by cutting it up with the ridged cutter. 

2. Ridged Yam.
