Ravi said...

Hey Parsnip and Radish are two different vegetables. While RAdish is Mullangi in Telugu and Mooli in Hindi, Parsnip is not called Mullangi or Mooli.
Infact Parsnip belongs to the family of Carrots while
Radish belongs to the family of Cabbage, Cauliflower, Mustard etc. Please check at your end and make the correction if possible.

Good list but the picture which you have put up for turnip is incorrect. Turnip is slightly purple towards the top. The picture is that of kohlrabi or knol-khol. In North India it is called gaanth gobi.

Hey, Knol Khol/Kohlrabi is Gaanth gobhi in Hindi and Shalgam is Turnip(root vegetable) and these two are very different. Please verify and make the corrections.

Did u manage to get the correct name of parsnip in Hindi? Plz let me know soon as I am very interested in knowing it.

Arti Nigam said...

Mooli in Hindi refers to a white carrot-shaped root vegetable (daikon?). Shalgam or Shaljam is called Turnips in English. See:

Maybe red radish is also called mooli? I don't know.
