I use both, but most of the time I use spoon and fork, actually it all depends to what I'm eating with rice.

Eating rice with my hand makes me feel good. It food I am eating becomes tastier.

It really depends on what food I eat to go with my rice. There is a Filipino food called tuyo(dried fish) and we Filipinos usually eat it by hand because it's just in our tradition and they say that it's much tastier. Other than that I eat with the help of spoon and fork.

HI siliguri, I prefer to eat by hand only. If I eat by spoon then I may not be satisfied with my eating or I felt I have not had my food. But in office if the colleagues are around then I may forced to eat by using a spoon. Some people believe that eating with a spoon is the right table manner but I feel tasty only when I eat by hands.

Dear friend, It depends, at times if at home I do eat with my hand and if I doing some other work while eating I may use spoon. But mostly I use my hands.

I always eat with a spoon/fork. Here in Finland you'd probably get kicked out from a restaurant if you ate it with hands :D I actually don't care about that but I still use a spoon/fork... The thought of eating it with my hands hasn't even crossed my mind :D I usually eat rice with some kind of sauce. But I guess I'll have to try eating with hands some day :D

Yeah :D I actually don't really think it would make much of a difference to me... And I guess I like using a spoon more than using my hands, in fact the thought of eating with hands feels in a way even a little gross :D But anyway, since most of the people here like eating with hands, I'm curious and will test it myself as well the next time I eat rice :)

I use my hand to eat food. Seldom I go to Hotels, there sometime I use spoon.I like to quote the view of our India's Late President Dr Radhakrishnan. In a party hoisted for a function which was attended by many foreign dignitaries and Indian dignitaries including Dr Radhakrishnan. He started using the Spoon and then some of the Foreign dignitaries asked him why he has not used the spoon.The immediate reply from him is , "Any body can use any spoon but my hand I can only use". It has been proved right.Nowadays lot of diseases are spreading due to contagion. Our fore parents are right. happy myLotting.

Hi. siliguri. I always eat with a spoon or a fork when I eat rice. The only time that I have eaten rice out of my hand is when I am tasting it while it is cooking. It just may be less than a handful of rice then.

Dear friend, I am south Indian, the typical way we eat is by hands, that too after washing the hands. But at times I do eat with spoon if I feel my hands are not better or there is dirt. Moreover if there other curries and various ingredients it is comfortable for me to eat rice with my hands, that too my traditional Kerala way. I love to have rice or meal on banana leafs as it is our traditional way of eating a meal.

I often use spoon and fork to eat my meals. However, if the meal is composed of rice, grilled pork or sea foods we dipped in soy sauce or fish paste with calamansi I would likely use my hands. I eat more when I use them.

I have never in my life thought of rice as being a finger food. Therefore, I only eat rice with a spoon or with a fork. If I were to try to eat rice from my hand I would feel dirty and feel like I was eating like a child would eat. That said, I think that eating rice with a utensil is the much more adult way to eat food unless it is something that is made to be eaten with your hands, like fried chicken for an example.

I am not used to eating rice with hands that's why I don't really know how to eat rice with hands. Whenever we are in my grandmother's house in the province, my father always eat rice with hands, but me, I really have to have spoon to eat it. I cannot eat properly with hands that's because I didn't grow up in that way. But in the province, it's what practiced there. I only tried eating rice with my hands only one when I was a kid, and I couldn't eat properly.

I always wish to eat foods with hand cause there is a saying that what so ever tasty food it may be it can be really good only if have it with our hands. Also there are some good bacteria's present in everyones hand . so it gives a separate taste to the foods that we eat which even the gold or silver spoon wont give.

any which way can do. but of course, one has to consider the time, place and people you are sharing a meal with. if you are doing it all alone, you can do whatever pleases you. but when you eat socially, there are norms you have to follow, even with friends. also, you can eat rice whatever way you enjoy it and are comfortable in doing so.
