How to cut a mango
peeling and cutting it can be a hassle—though you, too, can learn the simple technique for cutting a mango.
- 1 ripe but still firm, mango
Use your knife to cut through the flesh, about 1cm (or half a finger-width) away from the center of the fruit to give you one ‘cheek’
Repeat on the other side of the mango
Then repeat with the other side. You should end up with three pieces: two halves, and a middle section that includes the pit.
Take a mango half and use a knife to make lengthwise and crosswise cuts in it, but try not to cut through the peel. Invert the mango half so that the cut segments are sticking out like a hedgehog.
Slice the flesh into thin wedges, or dice for smaller pieces.
Serve and enjoy your mango immediately.
