Hi girls! Mango is one of my favorite fruits, I absolutely love it. But preparing the mango can be a bit of a pain in the ass. Everybody knows the standard way of cutting a mango into cubes, right? But have you tried cutting it in fancy slices? It looks beautiful and the slices are perfect to use in all your savory and sweet dishes. I’ll show to how to make fancy mango slices in 60 seconds.
Let me show you how!
Start by peeling the mango. Using a peeling tool to make your life easy peasy.
Using a sharp knife, cut off both sides of the mango. Stay as close to the pit as possible. Afterwards, cut off any excess flesh and set aside.
Lay the mango flat in your working surface. Make very narrow vertical cuts. If you want to end with a leaf pattern, make sure to leave half an inch, so the slices will stay together.
Let the magic happen: push all the leaves to one side, and flatten your mango. A gorgeous leaf pattern will appear!
That’s it! It is so easy, yet your mango will look very impressive. Please tag me on Instagram (@fitgirlroos) if you tried this technique! I would love to see your creations 🙂
