Sitting in a crescent formation with the food in the middle, Bhutanese generally eat with their hands. The food is first served to the head of the family.

Before eating any meal, it is first offered to the deities kept at the altar. Basically, the Bhutanese people mold the rice in their hand in a tubular shape; a size fit to chomp and before it, dipped in the common array of dish- a fiery lentil.
In a Bhutanese setting of meals, the meals consist- for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a bowl of rice, a dish and lentil of chilli with cheese and any meat particularly beef.
