Definition

Roasted groundnut salesmen by the beach are often known to use the ladle/scoop to scrape the empty pan to give illusion that they have lots of business which attracts customers who may think they will get something hot and fresh. Thus when you have an ulterior motive (maybe kissing up to someone or flirting) you are said to "put kadalai".
