Fruits and Vegetables in Hindi

I have been teaching my students the vocabulary for fruits and vegetables in Hindi. The scenario I dream about is that after the lessons a child goes to the grocery store with their mom or dad and busts out with “tamaatar!” “gaajar!” or “alu” and the parent will smile and feel proud and it will be a moment of happiness.

Learning the vocabulary for fruits and vegetables in Hindi is useful, easy and kids tend to remember them because they tend to be part of everyday conversation. 

How To Say Fruit and Vegetable in Hindi

Fruit is phal. Have a listen. 

Vegetable is sabzee. Many people pronounce it sabjee – with a “j” sound. But it’s actually a “z” sound. The reason many people in India pronounce it with a “j” is because “z’s” are hard for them to say. For most of my students that’s not an issue – neither is it for me. But I also grew up saying, “sabjee” not realizing it is wrong. It wasn’t until I was in college that I learned the correct pronunciation. One day I was asking my mom about some Hindi words and phrases and she added, “beta the correct pronunciation of sabjee is actually with a “z”. Me = mind blown! Hear me say it below.

Note About Spellings In My Lessons

I specialize in teaching children whose first language is English. Thus the way I spell Hindi words phonetically is based on how they have learned to read and write.

Let’s Have Some Fun With Hindi

Sometimes I write short, goofy poems using the vocabulary from class to make the kids laugh and help with retention. This is one for apple, orange and banana.

About Samta Aunty

I try to be like the quintessential cool Masi, to all of my students. Smiling, loving, and ALWAYS trying to make them laugh.

Welcome and thank you for joining me today! I set out to create an educational platform for desi children to learn Hindi and their culture in a fun, no stress, and convenient way. Students across the globe take our classes right from the convenience of their living room!

I learned Hindi at home while growing up in southern California. My parents were amongst the first Indian and South Asian immigrants to this country and I appreciated their efforts and those of the Uncles and Aunty’s that worked hard to foster cultural and religious awareness for us first generation American-born desi kids. Especially when they themselves were establishing their lives in a new country.

And now I’m in a position to continue their work. Language connects people. And for the children I teach I’m helping them connect to their grandparents and other loved ones.
