Meaning of fennel seeds in different languages

When it comes to spices and certain ingredients, we tend to use the local name in the kitchen / grocery store. So when I am reading a recipe and I come across certain words like fennel seeds, I would generally get confused whether it means jeera, methi daana or saunf. Actually saunf did not even occur to me when I first read fennel seeds ;)

I thought it’s a better idea to keep a note of what certain spices and ingredients are called in various languages. It also helps when I visit a supermarket like Hypercity or DMart store just before trying out a new recipe. Hope this helps you too.

Here's the meaning of fennel seeds in various languages:

Fennel seeds in Hindi and Urdu - Saunf
Fennel seeds in Bengali - Mouri
Fennel seeds in Gujarati - Variyali
Fennel seeds in Kannada - Badesoppu
Fennel seeds in Malayalam and Tamil - Peruncheeragam / Shombu
Fennel seeds in Marathi - Badeeshep
Fennel seeds in Telugu - Sompu / Peddajeelakarra

Fennel seeds are used after meals as digestive. They are also used as breath freshener.
