Vegetables Name in English

India is an agricultural country. There is a lot of plantation that takes place across the country. In most parts of India, vegetables are grown.  Owing to the connectivity, most of the Indian vegetables name are available in every part of the country. This post does not talk about the recipes. In this post, we will be discussing the vegetables name. I plan to cover all vegetables name in English. However, as of now, I am including the vegetable names of Indian vegetables. By Indian vegetables, I mean the vegetables which are used in cooking in the Indian kitchens. This list shall be updated frequently.

In India, lots of vegetables are used for cooking. As per Wikipedia, the data of 2014 shows that 31% of the Indian population was vegetarian. And this is a very high percentage as compared to the other countries. For a better understanding, I have listed the vegetables alphabetically. I have tried to be as much accurate as possible. However, if I have missed anything do let me or feel free to correct me by commenting on the post.

Further, I am also taking up a few common questions related to vegetables name.

The egg-shaped, purple colored vegetable is known as brinjal in India, Eggplant in American English and Aubergine in British English. So basically aubergine, brinjal, and eggplant are the same; just different names for the same vegetable.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
