Typical Indian villagers do not use cultlery. Hands are washed before eating and one hand only is used to test the temperature of the food as well as experincing the sensual touching the food. The other hand is used to pass plates etc around. Flat breads (Roti or chapatti made of wheat flour or jowar/bajri) is torn unto bite sized oeices and used in the hand to scoop up vegetables and lentils/chickpeas. Or rice is pressed into balls with with the vegetables.
