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


Khatti malai or khatti makkani.

  • Could you include your source, Spicy? Others including myself would love to have that resource. Thanks! :-) – Kristina Lopez Jan 13 '13 at 19:20
  • @KristinaLopez What source? Perhaps I speak Hindi - थोडा़ खट्टा मक्खन ;-) – spiceyokooko Jan 13 '13 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? – Kristina Lopez Jan 13 '13 at 19:42
  • @KristinaLopez Makkani, Makhani can also mean cream. – spiceyokooko Jan 13 '13 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. – spiceyokooko Jan 13 '13 at 20:13
