Wash them properly with water and dry them off

Peel the washed mangoes and cut them into pieces of desired size

Spread them out in a plate and arrange them in a way that they don’t overlap or are crowded too much

Silver foil also could be used to cover the mango pieces

Put the plate in the freezer for 3-4 hours
