Pakoda?

Jerk (A nosy colleague of mine I would love to do without :/ ): "Where are you going?"

Me: "Mouse room"

Jerk: "Why?"

Me: "To make mouse pakoda."

Jerk: "What’s paaakoooodaaaaa? Is it like daaael? (Well..he is referring to "daal"...And only God knows how I should spell what he actually calls it!)

Me: (Disappear before I kill you!!): "No. It’s that round-yellow-oily thing I made and you hogged on the other day. Just that mouse pakoda has a tail hanging out. Easy to fry!"

@Praveen
Arre ek samose main itna remorse?
I remember when my Ma used to eventually get tired of makind such super-drooling stuff..she used to ask"aur chahiye?"
All we used to say is "keep it coming, baby!"
