not wearing gloves would invoke some flack from a health inspector.
However, I don't thing that's the case here, because:
1: It's Old Delhi
2: The germs probably aren't an issue thanks to the temperature.

Here we have a guy with actual super-powers and he's using them to fry fish instead of fight crime.
One can only assume that this is just a cover for his secret identity as Asbestos Man.

"I HATE this guy!"

2 William Seabrook writes in his biography of Robert Wood that when they got acquianted, Wood handed him a handful of flames. He took it, and surmised he would not be writing the biography if he didin't. The fire was "not hotter than a cucumber".

3 Surely you're Joking, Mr. Feynman has a hilarous anecdote where Feynman, as an adult, remembered doing as a kid magic tricks, and doing one where he dipped his hand in rubbing alcohol or something and lit it on fire, and didn't burn himself.  Nobody believed him, so he tried it again and discovered that as an adult, it doesn't work, because the hair on his hand and wrist wicked up the alcohol.

4 RickC - the Leidenfrost Effect, that's what I was thinking too.  It's hard to judge from the video, but he doesn't seem to be doing it that quickly.
