How to Cut a Mango Like a Pro
Quick and easy cut a mango into cubes.
Cut off the ‘cheeks’ (the sides) of the mango by placing the mango on the cutting board standing upright with the stem facing downwards and carefully cutting from the top downwards just next to the pit in the center slicing the mango cheek off the pit.
Turn the fruit around and cut the other cheek of the same way. You will have three pieces: two cheeks and the middle including the pit.
Cut a grid pattern in the mango flesh by making lengthwise and crosswise cuts in the flesh. Be careful not to cut through the skin.
Remove the mango cubes from the skin with a spoon. You can also slice it off with a knife or even use your fingers.
The mango pit is still covered in flesh. Cut the remaining flesh away from the pit. Peel these small sections of mango with the knife and cut into cubes.
