The other day, cooking at home, asked my husband whether he would be okay eating his chapatis (flat wheat bread) with a dry vegetable dish I prepared with so much love. He looked sheepishly at me and agreed in a low voice. Whatever u cook will be okay for me, my love.
But I knew better, he likes his curries. Being an expat for so long has not changed his preferences. He cannot eat food without curry or a yogurt.
When we are talking about curry in India, ask an Indian from any part North to South, East to West, he cannot think of food without ordering a curry. At any given time, a curry consists of a minimum of 5-6 combinations of spices-Turmeric, Coriander, Cardamom, Cumin, some kind of pepper (black/red), asafetida. Each spice standalone helps us in the smooth working of our body system and helps build our defense system. The combination helps make curry such a strong influence in an Indian life. Whether it be home or a restaurant, curry is always a big part.
The selection of spices for a curry depends on the region and influence of culture. North traditionally uses more of cumin and South more of mustard seeds.Each region and culture lends a specific and colourful taste to a curry.The spices are added at different times while cooking or at the same time to lend the curry its flavor.
Curry, sauce or gravy are different names defining the spices which either coats completely the ingredients (semi gravy) or flavors with a broth. Eaten with a combination of wheat flat breads (chapati) and rice at homes, curry is normally a thick paste which can have vegetables, lentils, meat, seafood .
Curry houses and restaurants started opening across the world as the love for curry grew across the world. At first the curry was adopted to the tastes of the people where the curry house was. But now people have started craving for the authentic taste of the curry. United Kingdom calls curry its ‘adopted national dish’. Other than Britain, curry is amongst the main dishes in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, China and even Africa. Each country has its own delicious curry with dominant flavors and spices.
But the prominence and origin of Curry is in India, the colorful and flavorful my country which has always so much to offer.
The world will turn if I see my grandparents using a fork or a knife while eating. A spoon is still acceptable while eating a Daal. But cut your roti(Indian flatbread) with a knife and it is a sacrilege. What my perception is the fork or the twisting and piercing food machine came into the our lives(the Indian Household) with the invention and introduction of the GREAT NOODLES. Still the knife is a cutlery item, which you will not find in the basic table setting of an Indian household. Majorly because we think everything (even meat) should be cut bite size. Imagine getting a big chicken steak with curry and calling it chicken curry. No ways!!!!
Using the God-given machines
The Indian motto behind using your fingers when eating food is “It becomes more delicious and you know you are eating the food with the right temperature and not burning your taste glands. So before and after eating the first thing to do is wash your hands well. You always eat with the fingers of your right hand thus not making your left hand ‘Jhootha’(I cannot find an appropriate English word maybe ‘dirty’). Never try to play ping pong with your hands. Using your fingers also blends your food well. So if you are eating a roti, tear it into bite size make it a cone/boat/paan shape and scoop your curry into it and take it all the way to your mouth without dripping. Eating rice is much easier so it is better beginners tries the rice and curry. But your goal should be ultimately to eat the roti the Indian style.
Indian food unlike the western food is served all at once on the table with only the sweet following. Guests usually start eating before the host. Ladies of the household hover around you filling your plate (till you completely give up and want to sleep their and then) and generally telling you ‘theek se khao’ ‘kitna kam khate ho’ ‘ ek roti aur du’ ‘arre abhi to kya khaya hai’ and so on.
And don’t forget you don’t ever enjoy the Indian food ultimately till you don’t eat it the Indian way.
With all the sumptuous dishes, intricate ingredients and tongue tickling flavors, Indian Cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Indian cuisine incorporates a whole palette of flavors – sweet, sour, spicy, tangy – all at once. It is an amalgamation of a wide net of spices, pulses, seasonings and cereals.

Eating food with hands not only fills your body but also the mind and soul. Most Indians still believe in the concept, especially in the south where people still prefer to eat with hands.
According to Ayurvedic texts each finger is an extension of one of the five elements. The thumb is space. Children at the age when they are unable to chew tend to suck their thumb, this is nature’s way of aiding the digestion. The fore finger is air, the ring finger is earth, mid finger is fire and the little finger is water. Imbalance of any of these elements can actually lead to many diseases or disorders in the body. When we eat with our hands we normally stick our fingers and thumb together to eat, therefore when we use all the five fingers to eat food that is when we put all the five elements energising the food and helps in keeping all our pranas in balance.
If you suffer from poor digestion, try eating with hands because the tips of fingers are one of the strongest and often used sensation in the body. The moment we touch our food with hands, the brain signals the stomach that we are about to eat. This in turn, prepares the stomach to digest the food it will receive, aiding in better digestion.
A recent study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition found that people with type 2 diabetes were more likely to be hasty eaters and used cutlery to eat, as compared to people without the condition. If you suspect that you might be eating too fast, ditch utensils and focus on your eating method. You have to deliberately slow it down and see how you feel after eating with hands. You will be amazed by how soon you will get full with less food if you eat with your hands. But do make sure that your nails are trimmed and hands are clean enough to eat food, otherwise you might end up having infection.
