Wash and peel carrots and potatoes. Dice the potatoes into medium size. Grate the carrots on a grater with large mesh.

In a large pot combine together water, potatoes and carrots. Add  a whole black pepper, all spices, garlic and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender about 20 minutes
