EATING CURRY

 

 

A friend of mine is such a dork

he eats his curry with a knife and fork.

    If you're really authentic youd use your hands!

      So true but coronavirus has put a stop to that.

        Good write Michael and so true, I have always used a fork and a spoon.

          It's so difficult to cut rice grains with a knife isn't it! Thanks Andy

          And for the beer bellies amongst us, try eating a curry with chopsticks, the weight literally falls off. Good point. Joe

            I allways use chop sticks when eating Chinese food - it's easy when you get the hang of it but completely mad.

            Michael, I have a similar issue at an
            Italian restaurant, I eat spaghetti using fork & spoon, the spoon is the surface on which I "twirl" the spaghetti, it's a must for me, I have to ask for it, cause I get a fork & knife only & to topped it off I get the "weirdo" stareπŸ€”
            Have a great day, Sir
            *C✌

              Ah - we're birds of a feather - yes I also eat it with spoon and fork and twiddle as you do - it's the only way.

              Absolutely,,In today's epoch,,fork becomes human hands !!

            • Mottakeenur Rehman

              That's not good for our culture,,,We the people of Assam(India) never accept this tradition ...I think hands are the most useful tool in such cases ,given to us by the Creator .

              • Michael Edwards

                I agree with you Mottakeenur and when in India I also have used my hands out of respect for my hosts. In fact I still do when eating with chippatis, naan, etc.

                  And those hygene rules are a right flippin caper,
                  I wanna eat my chips out of last weeks newspaper.

                  Authentic restaurants serve on a leaf too.

                    My hands have never been so clean - nowadays repeating the annual ritual many times a day.
