Pronouncing food in Hindi

Here are some more words related to food:

Here I think it's important to give you a quick explanation of the words: fork and knife.

The literal translation of the word fork is “Kāṇṭā aura Śūla” in Hindi. This translation is not suitable for talking about eating accessories. Also the literal translation for “knife” is “Cākū”. So, if you use Kāṇṭā  aura Cākū” for knife and fork, you will be understood, though the expression sounds a bit weird. 

Normally, Indians eat with their right hand and only “upper class society” use a knife and fork for daily meals.

Describing Food

The following words will be useful for expressing your appreciation of food, and also for identifying the style in which it is cooked when reading a menu.
