Here’s how to neatly cut a pomelo, according to Chef Saransh Goila.

*Take a pomelo and slice off both ends uniformly.

*Make gashes in the pomelo’s peel in the shape of a triangle. Carefully tear off slices of the peel as it will open up like flower petals.

*Slice the remainder of the white peel and rind from the fruit with a sharp knife. You’ll be able to see the bright flesh of the fruit.

*Open the segments of the pomelo with your hands and use them as required.

A winter favourite, pomelos also contain a high amount of fibre and can be added to jams, marmalades, soups, salads or even candies!
