In this page, we will list down the name of the Ingredients in Tamil language and English language. We will be adding more languages soon.
Note: You may want to check out Spices dictionary.
And check out Tamil to English dictionary for all the native words used in this website.
This page prep is under progres.
This page is organized under these categories:
Native vegetables (that are grown and used in Tamil Nadu for centuries)
Native leaves (that are grown and used in Tamil Nadu for centuries)
Oils, Nuts and Dryfruits
For some of the vegetables / ingredients there is hardly any equivalent except in India and hence we are yet to fill up an English name to it.
The below list is sorted by alphabetical order in Tamil language (unlike other lists in this website), as many words are in Tamil language and easier to point to the word user is looking for.
In Tamilnadu (and in India in general), people started using a mix of English names and names in native tongue as per their convenience.
Note: We will be adding more entries as and when we add new recipe/pages. We are also planning to include translations into other foriegn languages like French, Japanese. Come back again to see the updated Ingredients dictionary.
