I need to know it so that I can purchase it from the market. What is sour cream called in Hindi?


1 Answer 1


Khatti malai or khatti makkani.

  • Could you include your source, Spicy? Others including myself would love to have that resource. Thanks! :-) Jan 13, 2013 at 19:20
  • @KristinaLopez What source? Perhaps I speak Hindi - थोडा़ खट्टा मक्खन ;-) Jan 13, 2013 at 19:32
  • Well, that's a possibility, of course, but my version of Google does not find the word "makkani". Did you mean "makhani" and if so, does that mean "khatti makhani", or sour butter is the same substance as sour cream? Jan 13, 2013 at 19:42
  • @KristinaLopez Makkani, Makhani can also mean cream. Jan 13, 2013 at 20:02
  • @KristinaLopez You need to remember than the English versions of Sanskrit words are phonetic and therefore spellings can and will vary considerably. Jan 13, 2013 at 20:13
