4 ripe mangoes
4 limes
2 tbsps chilli powder
2 tbsps salt
Special equipment: 4 pairs wooden chopsticks, still attached, or sturdy candy sticks

1) Holding the mango vertically, stem end down, push chopsticks carefully but firmly upward right into the pit or as close to the pit as possible. Peel the mango, using the chopsticks to sturdy your grip. Working from bottom to top starting at the mango's midpoint; make 3 cuts into the flesh at a slight downward angle almost to the pit, being careful to keep the petals attached to the pit at their base. Gently bend each cut-away from the pit as if opening a petal. Rotate the mango about 60 degrees. Repeat process until the entire mango has been cut to look like a flower. Repeat with remaining mangoes.

2) Squeeze lime juice over mangoes and sprinkle with equal amounts chilli powder and salt before serving.
