  • Here are some angered Twitter reactions you must eat.

Rice is a staple in Indian cuisine, especially in south India, and most people like to eat their rice meal with the use of their hands. This is just an age-old custom that has been passed down generations and everyone swears that food tastes better when eaten with hands, not any cutlery. But a British man seemed to have outraged these set of people with his tweet opposing their belief. Twitter user ‘The Royal Butler’, Britain’s etiquette expert, posted a picture of an almost-finished plate of rice and claimed that rice is best eaten with a knife, fork or chopsticks.

According to the bio of The Royal Butler, he is also a Royal Commentator/Aide and former butler to Princes Charles, William and Harry. He decided to share his knowledge of royal eating etiquettes via a Twitter post that drew the ire of desi Twitterati. He wrote in his post, “Ladies and gentlemen, remember we always use a knife and fork or chopsticks to eat rice! We do not use our hands or fingers!!!”

“Ladies & gentlemen, remember WE always use d most flexible, hygienic, portable, eco-friendly, no-cost instrument called HAND which basically is a Spoon+ knife+fork to eat rice & other things! We do use our metal cutlery depending on occasion/place. Basically WE ARE OPEN MINDED. Are u?”
