SPONSORED

We Indians don't pay attention to many things and one of them is English names of everyday vegetables. We are so used to calling vegetables by their Hindi names that we totally forget that they have an English name. But, honestly, Hindi names are much more easy to pronounce and remember, right?  

But then, we should know the English names too, given if we don't, what will we teach our children? *laughing out loud*  

So, in your brain, how many vegetables can you think of whose names you actually know in English? Probably one or two?  

Here are 14 vegetables whose English names, I'm gonna share with you today.

You can thank me later. *wink*    

1. Baingan 

English name of everyday vegetables

We were taught to call it brinjal in English when we were in play school. But as we grew up, we realised it is called eggplant in foreign countries, a name which we eventually adopted. Sounds cool!

2. Patta Gobhi 

English name of everyday vegetables

Patta Gobhi or Band Gobhi as we Indians know it is called cabbage. If you didn't know, you can learn it here.

3. Karela 

English name of everyday vegetables

Karela will be Karela for we Indians, no matter what we do! Kadwa Karela sounds so much better than Bitter Gourd, right?     

4. Lobia

English name of everyday vegetables

Instead of a vegetable, black eyed peas remind of the rock band 'Black-Eyed Peas'. Honestly, lobia is easier to speak, but okay, 'Black-Eyed Peas' sound 'smart'!    

5. Kakdi 

English name of everyday vegetables

This one is common I guess, but still to tell you cucumber is Kakdi or Kheera as you may call it!

6. Phul Gobhi

English name of everyday vegetables

This is my favourite vegetable and it is called cauliflower but eh the real feel is in calling it Gobhi!   

7. Lauki

Bottle Gourd, really? Like who will even remember this name? And even if you do, you speak it out loud, telling someone you want to have or you don't want to have it, they will declare you a crazy person.

8. Chukandar

English name of everyday vegetables

Though it is extremely healthy for our bodies, its English name sounds way better than its Hindi name. Chukandar, really? *ROFL*     

9. Gwar Phali

English name of everyday vegetables

Who on the earth named this as Gwar Phali and why? French Beans sound so much better and easier to speak.     

10. Bhindi 

English name of everyday vegetables

Bhindi is probably every kid's favourite vegetable and a vegetable whose name we learn first in a primary school. We don't ever call it 'Okra' or 'Ladies Finger'.  

11. Kumbhi

I'm dead sure, you all know its English name. Learn its Hindi name today, Kumbhi, okay? 

12. Pudina 

English name of everyday vegetables

Pudina is the flavour we love in everything, be it chutney, mojito or something else. But do you know, it is called Peppermint Leaves? 

13. Parwal 

English name of everyday vegetables

I don't know who eats these, forget the name. Parwal is called Snake Gourd, okay? Happy?   

14. Shimla Mirch

English name of everyday vegetables

Even in this case, you might be knowing that Shimla Mirch is called Capsicum. But did you know that it is called Bell Pepper in foreign countries?
