Always consider a food poisoning when a patient presents with a mixture of gastrointestinal symptoms: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and fever.

It’s more common with kuttu flour. The prevention lies in buying it from a standard shop, not buying last year’s stock, or getting in grind in front of us. One should report to the doctors if within six hours of consuming it one gets vomiting or nausea.
