Definition

Often pronounced "michcher". It's hard to describe this popular teatime snack as anything but "mixture". A mess of assorted fried dough products in various shapes, along with peanuts, fried daal, even curry leaves. Mixture is picked up with a spoon in one hand and dropped into the opposite palm, and then tossed into the mouth.

Mixture is accompanied by tea, Marie biscuit, murruku and sometimes, sweetmeats. Pontification about the state of the nation while gently spraying half-chewed mixture onto the sofaset is a common avuncular pasttime.

Usage

"Have some mixture uncle."
"Oh no no no no no no no." Takes some anyway.
