'One minute' confused into Tamil-speak: to be used ONLY when speaking in English pa. Mutation of 'onnu (oru) nimitam' which is pakka Tamil for - you guessed it! - one minute. Especially Naughty Tamil Uncles rejoice in using this.

Usage

Amma: Kannu! Come and eat tiffin.
Child: Onnimit amma! Going toilet only, and then I will come.
