The best etiquette of Indian dining changes with every region in India. Typically, in the rural settings, all Indians usually wash their hands thoroughly before dining, then they eat with their hands, with no cutlery.

Thanks for A2A. You can eat Indian food using fork,knife or spoon. But you can enjoy Indian food only with your hands. The consistency and texture of most of the dishes is best suited for hands. For instance eating dosa and chapati with fork and knife is quite a difficult task. When traditional Indian food is served on banana leaf,eating with hand is the most convenient method.
