Definition

Legendary timepass snack, famous in older parts of Bangalore and Mysore, consisting of peanuts - skinned, fried and made especially spicy. Probably named after the Congress Party because of the colour the peanuts take on after they are spiced and fried.

Usage

Kamala: Lokesha, don't forget to take your Subbammana Angadi package in your luggage. You won't find things like that in US.
Lokesha: Thanks amma, have you packed the Congress Kadlekayi?
Kamala: Yes Chinna, Congress Kadlekayi, Communist Kadlekayi, and Computer Kodbaley, everything is there.

Definition

Desification of the phrase, "I mean". A confluence of "matlub" (means "meaning" in Hindi) and like, often employed when one attempts to explain oneself better, or as a filler when one is unsure of what to say next. Probably an invention of desi techie boys in Silicon Valley, or a by-product of desis watching too much Star TV.

Usage

Mr Barodia: Beta what do you do?
Manish: I am in my father's business. Minns-like...we supply copper wire. Minns like...I had estudied engineering in US, but now I am doing copper wire business.

Definition

The term Indians use to refer to a game of Hide-n-Seek. Also yelled out by the denner when s/he spots someone hiding. Probably inspired from the game "I-spy" which has nothing to do with Hide-n-Seek.

Usage

Kiran: Come, let's us play Ice-spies

Janaki: Yay! Ok come let's put cleps....majority wins...ok Swarnagowri is the denner!

Swarnagowri: Janaki! Ice-spies! Ice-spies!

Exclamation.

Definition

An interjection that broadly expresses disgust, but used with varying tones in different contexts. E.g., in a slanging match on the street it assumes a loud, aggressive tone. Young, coy brides and GFs could employ a flirtatious cloying tone in a befitting response to romantic/sexual overtures from men. Sometimes you utter a half amused one to dismiss someone trying to pull your leg. Sometimes it just means "ewwwwwww".

Usage

Petrol Thimma: Ay loaffffer!!!!! By tomorrow if I don't make your brother into an ingredient for your biryani, my name is also not Petrol Thimma!
Biryani Bashir: (Anger and aggression) Ay thoooo! This Naayi Maganay has no shame. Respectfully leave my shop or I will give you your funeral date.

Mangesha: Ley Shashirekha, I am feeling thirsty yaa.
Shashirekha (shy coming) : Ay thuh, go man, I know you're talking full double meaning.
Mangesha: (Feeling chesty and good about himself)

Shashirekha: Ay Latha you have a super structure ya, you should become a model.
Latha: Ay thuh go ya. Don't talk nonsense
