ASIAN DINING INDIA ETIQUETTE Always wash your hands An open "washing area," / “basin," might have been placed near the dining area for this specific purpose Eat with your right hand. The left hand is not used DO NOT share utensils. for eating, this is considered offensive and unclean. Coming in contact with another person's spit is called “Jootha," and is considered offensive in many parts of India. A roti must only be used to scoop up other food. Proper scooping technique involves making a boat-like shape with the roti, scooping up the curry without letting too much of the curry touch your fingers, and inserting the food into your mouth before anything spills out of the “boat". Random Trivia! Ask for whatever you want instead of reaching out directly or pointing at dishes. In Indian etiquette NEVER offer anyone food from your thali (plate) , even if it is in one of the little bowls and you haven't touched it Sources: O gourmet Society PHILIPPINES f GourmetSocietyPH @GourmetPH O GourmetSocietyPH
