Fish in Hindi

Indian's are known for being a sea-faring people. In fact, India has over 4,000 miles of coastline! With this much coastline, it’s no wonder that seafood is a staple in most states in India. In this lesson, we’ll talk about various types of machhlii in Hindi. Some of these you might find on a plate garnished with lemon, and some you might see on a snorkeling trip or in a fish tank peeking out from behind some coral! Either way, this is important vocabulary to know while traveling.
