I thought this was "chandalua". Do both versions exist?

R and l are basically interchangeable in Swahili pronunciation, but "chandarua" is the correct spelling according to the dictionaries.

I googled both and it appears that both are correct. I noticed that many words actually have different versions, for example baisikeli and baiskeli are both correct.
