and sprinkle it over the leaf,
and then clear the water out of the leaf with the upper part of your hand.
now you have a clean leaf
mix the curry and rice,
use your five fingers to hold some food like the image depicts.
and pick it up and place it in your mouth.
take reference from the pictures.
since it is very dilute,
it is advisable to pat the rice a bit while collecting and mixing it with the rusum, so as it is solidifies.
once there's only a bit of food left, that is mostly liquid in nature,
use one's entire hand to sweep of the mixture and lick it of the four fingers.
when there is very little left, then use only your middle finger and pointer finger to pick up the liquid, slide it slowly through the liquid, so as the liquid comes through and sits in the little curve made between the fingers (by joining them).
refer to the picture for more clarity.
if your content with the food, fold the leaf towards yourself,
incase you were disappointed,
fold the leaf in the opposite direction (like our model) :D
there. you now know how to eat like a south indian.
