There is a sign written boldly in ink at the Coimbatore Railway station (towards the southern end of the platform no: 1) that says

'NO USE URINE'

Not been able to understand what they mean - whether that urine is of no use or that the urine is not to be used???

This is in our office toilet. One of the rare occasions where the management covers your rear side.

I was in Mapro - Mahabaleshwar last weekend and went to the toilet and burst into tears reading "Please aim straight". As if playing a video game or something

They probably want to say 'Don't use this area for urination'.

That's because some folks, in the quest for relieving themselves don't essentially aim straight.

Serve South Indian Gunpowder Chutney with Idlis (steamed South Indian rice cakes) or Dosas (crispy savory South Indian rice pancakes) and Sambar or simply sprinkle it on plain boiled rice and tuck in!
Ingredients:
  • 4 tbsps Chana daal (large split yellow lentil)
  • 3 tbsps skinless Urad daal
  • 3 tbsps sesame seeds
  • 5 dry red chillies (this is already really hot. Add more for more heat)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
Preparation:
  • Heat the oil in a deep pan on medium flame. Add the Daals and dry red chillies and roast on a very low flame till they start to turn light brown in color.
  • Add the sesame seeds and keep roasting till the seeds turn golden. Turn off fire.
  • Use a coffee grinder or food processor to grind the above roasted ingredients to a coarse powder (not chunky and not flour-like either - in-between).
  • Remove into a suitable serving bowl and add salt to taste. Add sugar and stir well to mix.
  • Serve with [COLOR=#3366cc]Idlis[/COLOR] (steamed South Indian rice cakes) or Dosas (crispy savory South Indian rice pancakes) and Sambar or simply sprinkle it on plain boiled rice and drizzle with [COLOR=#3366cc]ghee[/COLOR].
  • You can store this chutney in an air-tight container for at least a week.
