We start off by appreciating the mango, in all its glory.
Once you think you’ve appreciated the mango enough, slice of the top. And create two parallel cuts as such. The aim is to ensure that both cuts are on either side of the seed.
Slice it through completely.
Don’t you hate it when the mango juices spill out like that? Whatay waste of magnificence. *clicks tongue*
Now, we take the fleshy mango bit and cut it parallel to its length and then perpendicular. So that it forms a grid. The distance between each cut should be according to the size of mango bits you want. Larger distances (like here) give you massive chunks of mango, smaller distances will give you smaller dices.
Its critically important to ensure that you don’t cut through the skin.
Once the grid is done, push the skin outward slightly. The mango grid will emerge to resemble this gorgeous structure.
With the help of a spoon or a knife, slowly scoop them into a bowl. Juices and all.
