tair lever
 n.— «You must have gone to a way side tea stall to have a cup of tea when you may be in a hurry. There you will find few varieties of snacks like a cake, a puff or a Kashmiri bread. But the one item which you can’t forget is flat and a bit longer. Hardly any body knows its real name because it has attained the title of “Tair lever,” a distorted form of tyre lever, given to it by some mobile workshop worker who must have been innovative in nature.» —“Script apna apna” by Shafi Ahmad Greater Kashmir (India) Dec. 6, 2004.
