Prem Kumar is, amazingly, still alive! His hands are in great condition, even though he regularly dips them in boiling oil.
Kumar, 65, is a chef in New Delhi. When he was young, he saw his father, from whom he inherited the restaurant, casually dip his hands in pots of boiling oil. Kumar tried it himself and found that he could do it, too.
Now people visit his shop not only for the fish, but for the amazing show he puts on. On request from his customers, he'll dip his hands in the oil.
Are you worried about this practice being unhygenic? Don't! That oil is 200°C. It will kill any bacteria on his hands.
