    If I could get away with just using my fingers to eat...I'd toss the cutlery altogether.

    I love eating this way. It is quieter and more tactile. It teaches you an entirely different approach to food.

    When we go to Indian restaurants, we eat with our fingers.

    yummmmmmmmmmmmm.

    all you have to do at the end is lick them and wipe them off.

    My ex-boyfriend came back from South East Asia and he would cook recipes he learned there. He would serve them and we were to eat it with a fork from the one dish.

    Nope, the one you are talking about is still here.

    But don't you think it is abit messy? I would rather lick from the spoon.
    If juicy bones, i would agree that use fingers is easier to eat but not rice.

    Re: My Indian muslim housemate

    I saw some show once with an Indian wedding and they were rolling rice and something else I guess into a ball and eating it with their hands. It's their custom it's fine with me. We eat burgers and pizza with out hands. Once I knew this woman who grew up in Spain and she said she didn't eat any food with her hands.

    Re: My Indian muslim housemate

    I vastly prefer eating Indian food, including very wet rice dishes, with my fingers. It's not messy. I wash my hands when finished.

    It's the year 2013, and we're still learning to enjoy the sophisticated manners of our fellows. I suppose for some "ease" is the ultimate value.

    Many cultures eat with their hands knowing full well that other cultures mainly use utensils.

    If you find it messy, nobody is forcing you to do the same. Keep using utensils and let others be.

    Btw, I am not Indian, but in my culture people do use their hands for most food unless it's soup. It is not messy if you know how to eat properly in that manner.

    And toilets aren't common there, either. They squat over a hole in the floor. It's actually much healthier.

    (I know this because my landlord is from New Delhi. He goes back to visit his family there every January. He won't go during the summer months. As he says, "It's just too damned hot!")

    It's like you're trying to convince others to stop being so backwards. "Come on, it's 2013!"?

    It's clear from your posts that you have a condescending attitude about how your roommate chooses to eat.

    Anyway, Telstra, I'm sure you didn't mean to be rude about it but that is how it's coming across.

    Sit-down toilets are common. Nice squatter style toilets are common. There are also shabby toilets that aren't much more than holes in the floor.

    Half of India's homes have cellphones, but not toilets

    …shamefully 50% of the Indian population has to defecate in public…

    Only 50% of households in the world's second-most populated country have indoor toilets…

    Nope.
    There are many good things about him.
    He is very chatty, nice and friendly, don't drink, don't smoke, down to earth ... etc.

    Compared to Aussie housemates, not chatty, keep to themselves, very quiet ...

    Just going by what my landlord has told me. He broke both of his ankles a few years ago and has had knee surgery as well. He can't squat anymore and uses a special seat that he places over the hole when he visits his family.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I'd probably be better eating food with my fingers than I am with utensils. I spill enough food when I eat when I'm using a fork. I still can't make chopsticks work properly either. That's always a hit and miss experience.

    It's not so much that he just told us how his roommate eats, but he told us that he should get with the times and eat with utensils. After all, it IS 2013.

    He mocked and insulted his roommate's culture. It's like mocking East Asians for using chopsticks.

    My mom said that eating with your hands helps you the appreciate the food better. It makes the meal more delicious. She always eat with her hands. Sometimes when she is eating with her hands, I will ask her to feed me. Being fed by someone you love with their hands is indescribable. Really take the blues away from a bad day.

    I don't really like to eat with my hands because my nails are manicured but when I do, I truly enjoy the meal. Feeling the warmth of the food is adds to the pleasure of eating. There's something magical about it that I like.

    Engineering can be defined as finding simple solution without any added expense or waste to a problem. Maybe your roommate is on to something. If you are eating with your hands and you make a mess, you are not doing it right.

    I was going to say something similar to your last sentence. I hear people complain about chopsticks are too hard to eat certain things with. That's lack of skill doing it the right way, not that chopsticks are bad to eat with. Everything solid, including non sticky rice, is possible to eat with someone who knows how to use chopsticks correctly.

    Some are easier to use than others, I find. If you use them a lot, you eventually get the practice you need to handle a variety of foods with different sizes or textures. I always have some chopsticks among my utensils just so I can practice using them occasionally until it becomes second-nature to me.

    Re: My Indian muslim housemate

    Im Asian but I use Spoons or Chopsticks when I eat Rice and use my Fingers when I eat meat with bones. I try not to use my fingers too much while eating and make sure I wash my hands really well before and after eating. Depends what I eat and I will use the right one.

    No he didn't make a mess. He use a big plate.
    The fingers looks messy with rice and spices stuck on the fingers. I'm not complaining, just commenting.

    Re: My Indian muslim housemate

    No offense, Telly, but you have tolerance issues...if he opts to eat with his hands, so what? It's not like he smears the oil or everything on his hands onto your clothes/furniture afterward. If he believes in eating kosher food, so what? He's not forcing it on you.

    In Asian countries, it's actually pretty common to eat using hands instead of utensils, even for curry, salad, and other gravy cuisines, even the wealthy and educated ones (doctors, scientists, managers). But I don't know about the Koran saying something about eating with hands...most of my most devoted Muslim friends use spoons and forks.

    I prefer using utensils, because here, toilets are often broken, dirty, or located far away, and tissue paper is often not available.
    come now, my child. if we were planning to harm you, do you think
    we'd be lurking here beside the path in the darkest part of the forest?

    It’s a cultural thing and there is NOTHING odd, archaic, or wrong with how he eats.

    Any comment on this from Telstra?

    Indians having a saying which goes something like "eating rice with a utensil is like having sex with an interpreter". For some reason they feel as if the rice tastes way better eating it with your hand.

    We have a thread devoted to chopsticks around here somewhere.

    C'mon Telly, you've called it messy and suggested it's backwards and difficult. You don't find it remarkable because it's a sophisticated manner. You find it remarkable for its awkwardness.

    Re: My Indian muslim housemate

    I think there is no reason to believe calling something "a cultural thing" should insulate it from comparison or criticism.

    At the same time, the Queen herself at a state dinner in the Waterloo Room at Windsor Castle will eat asparagus with her fingers and they will be no worse for wear than someone eating rice with his fingers. It looks awkward to me, and I'd prefer utensils, but this really does seem to be a case of local custom and etiquette being more similar from one place to another than meets the eye.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    ^^^^^^ This.

    I would like to advise you get some experiences in eating food with your hands. Why not ask him that he will prepare his type of food together for you and him, and that he will teach you how to eat it with hands. Likely, he will be happy to do this and to show you abit more about his culture / background.
    I am Dutch, so please excuse me for my low level of English.
