  12. Dear KD thanks for the effort. I knew the exact tamil names. But this blog is for people who goes to the shop and asks for vegetables in Tamil. Wonder the shop keeper know these names. So only I mentioned the colloquial names for some vegetables. Anyways... Pure tamil names are appreciated and you can continue posting here. I will mention these in a separate post.
