Spoof: Rules to enjoy Indian food (roll, lick, burp!)

We Indians love our food. And we really don't give a damn to the western table etiquette when it comes to relishing our food.

Be it any kind of cuisine across the world, we Indians have created our own etiquette and table manners.
Be it any kind of cuisine across the world, we Indians have created our own etiquette and table manners.

We Indians really love our food. And nothing from Western table etiquette to cutlery can come in the way of us relishing our food. From sipping tea from a saucer to gulping down alcohol and wiping off dripping lassi from abundant facial hair, our mannerisms are unparalleled.

Whatever be the cuisine, we have created our own etiquette, stabbing table manners in the heart three times over. For eg: Meals can never be enjoyed if not eaten with bare hands or followed by a good fulfilling burp.

Culture Machine’s Being Indian, the brain behind popular spoofs like Sunny Leone’s Baby Doll vs Baby Deol and Sonam Kapoor’s selfie song, has come up with its latest video on Indian table etiquette. Warning: you might die laughing.

Some highlights from the spoof:

How to drink tea: Start off angrezi style, then pour it into a saucer, slurp like you are doing Kapalbhati. Aahhh! It’s mandatory after every slurp.

How to drink lassi: Lick it for pleasure, finger it for more pleasure, now go to town on that creamy goodness, you sexy beast!

How to eat rice: Dip your fingers in holy water. Remove everything that comes between you and your gastronomical pleasure. Now don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.. Roll it, stuff it, you are sure to love it.

Rules to eat Chinese: As a wise Indian man once said “Vats, why use two sticks when you have five fingers.”

This was just an appetiser, watch the video and enjoy the full meal.
