He's like a fakir basically, it's all about brainwave patterns I think. His unconscious will do something to the skin etc.

Maybe he's Lord Shiva disguised as owner of a disgusting food shop in New Delhi, who knows?

If he doesn't care about dipping his hand in 200C boiling oil, he certainly doesn't care about nuking Earth from orbit either.

What altitude are they at I wonder? The higher the altitude the lower the boiling point due to lack of atmospheric pressure.

He's in New Delhi dude, not on Tibet.

Well that's where they SAY he is at jack-hole but it's pretty clear there has to be something going on here for him to be able to do that and not get 2nd - 3rd degree burns on his hands. Do you believe EVERYTHING you hear/read or just when it's in stupid vids on youtube? Him being at altitude is the easiest explanation.....remember Occam's razor....

Its not rocket science,the dudes got calloused hands the hard skin acts to insulate his fingers against the heat.Notice that he only dips his fingers in for a short wile.
I worked in a foundry in my early days and you could do the exact same thing with molten aluminium,granted you had to wear leather gloves but the temperature of the ally was nudging 700 degrees c.

Any explanations??
 Quoting: Ford Prefect


according to
yt: A Trip into the Supernatural - Roger Morneau

[link to www.youtube.com]

control of fire is said to be proof that satan and minions will win and inherit the earth, because God will not be able to destroy them in the "lake of fire."

thus: fire walking and other abilities… empowered by demons/fallen ones…

I am guessing the chef has an ability like some have the ability to dowse, levitate, leave their bodies… some can "learn" this by altering their vibratory state with drugs, meditations, drum beats, etc…

some are born with these abilities due to generational curses or occultism in past…

some just have special abilities due to the diversity of the creation…

I do this all the time. It is hot and mildly painful but as long as it's only for an instant no harm.

Found out when I absent minded used my fingers instead of tongs. Was like "oh fuckin shit! How stupid" then realized I was ok.

tbh I'm not too amazed, I'm a chef (write that down data miners) and while I don't dip my fingers into the actual fryer your hands do become seriously immune to heat after a while, I regularly pick up stuff that has literally just come up from the oil... still coated in it.

I knew a woman who worked as a bagel maker when she was in college and she swears that after awhile, you just start plucking the bagels out of the boiling water and you build up a tolerance to it over time.

This is after I saw her pluck something out of a pot of boiling water while I was watching. I would never have believed it either had I not seen it.
 Quoting: tandym


This is not tolerance, maybe the brain somehow disconnects from the pain, but the skin doesn't develop any resistance.
 Quoting: Ford Prefect


Bullshit.

I am a chef, that is my job and I'm telling you that you are incorrect.

My fingertips are like steel, it's not a disconnect from pain, it's toughened calloused skin built up over years of exposure to intense heat.

Like the knuckles of a bare fist boxer, like the fingertips of a guitar player.
Do you know why Shaolin monks plunge their hands into vats of hot iron filings?

Fuck it, believe what you like, it makes no odds to me... but just realize that some of us know what we are talking about.

...and btw, cooking for yourself at home is NOT even remotely like working in a kitchen for a living, try spending 12 hours a day every day picking up stuff covered in boiling oil for a decade or so... then maybe you'll be in more of a position to comment on this subject.

That's like comparing your commute to work to getaway driving, it's not even in the same galaxy dude.

When Prem Singh was asked to lend a helping hand frying fish at his family restaurant he took it rather too literally.

The chef, 65, has become famed in the backstreets of Old Delhi for his unique ability to plunge his bare hands into searing cooking oil.

He regularly dips his fingers into a bubbling vat of oil, which is heated up to 200C, to pluck out the fried fish.
 Quoting: [link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

 Quoting: Ford Prefect


His not the only guy,...A man in China can do this too.

They don't appear to have burns on there hands but it does look like Calluses(layers of built up skin).

I had this as a kid runnin around barefoot a lot. I could walk over anything sharp, cold or hot and didn't feel or get cut. The thick skin acts as a natural layer of production and will only keep getting tougher if you keep at it.

When I used to work in restaurants I developed a resistance to heat in my hands, as well. I could pick up searing hot pans and plates with no discomfort and no burning or blistering. I have retained some of this ability to this day 20 years later.

Maybe he has a circulatory disorder that causes his hands to be very cold.

I was diagnosed with a circulatory disorder that is a cousin of Raynaud's. My fingertips would turn blue, and my hands and feet were always ice cold. I had to move to a warm climate, because my doctor said I was in danger of getting gangrene in the winter.

When I was at my worst, I could take burning hot pans out of the oven with my bare hands. Not quick grabs and drops either; I could hold onto them for several seconds without being burned. In fact, the sensation was nice. That, and running my hands under scalding hot water, got the circulation back into my fingers again. I will admit, I never dipped my hands in boiling oil, though grease splatters never bothered me.

I can't do that stuff anymore though. Living in the tropics seems to have cured me.
