Did you know?

In India, all the foods are put on a table in bowls.

Everyone serves themselves a little from each bowl.

Instead of using forks they eat with their right hand.

People in India use a flat bread called chapati to scoop up food from their plates.

You could also try it using wholemeal pitta bread.
