Twisted Holed and Flat Unholed Donuts

Here's the scoop of what happened and what the title is about.

One of my colleague's had come back from India after a vacation and my parents had sent some home-made munchies. Being a good girl and honestly thinking that (since some of my colleagues wereon site and the office wasn't too crowded that day) I could make it home with at least half of what my parents had sent, I did it.

I opened one packet each of thattai and murukku and asked my lead engineer to try it. Being a monstrous fan of anything Indian, he willingly obliged and as usually asked about the making procedure, ingredients, etc. I tried to explain the making procedure, whats the occasion and festival associated with it and such details. He got interested. When a couple other people stopped by his desk, he explained what the munchies were about. They asked the name of the item and repeated it. It was a total OHT.

A few minutes passed and I get an email from my lead engineer, which was also copied to everyone in our department. Subject of the email was "Twisted Holed and FlatUnholed Donuts - Straight from India" and the body of the email was to come to my desk for the supplies. Thanks to that, I couldn't bring anything back home and the whole package was emptied at work. But I couldn't get the twisted holed (murukku) and flat unholed (thattai) donut description from the corner of my head and so the post!!!
