Hindi to English Spice names

 

While going through the recipes of many dishes, we come across the challenge of identifying the name of an spice, some times these are mentioned in english and we are familiar with the hindi name of that spice and vice versa, which makes it difficult to experiment with the recipe.
Here I have tried to collate a list of spices which contains their hindi as well as english names. Hope you would find it helpful. I know the list is not complete and I have tried to prepare it as exhaustive as I could. If you do not find the name of a spice here in the list then let us know and we will try to find the relevant name of the spice.
