In the dictionary Tambi is vermicelli, but the question would only take spaghetti. Is vermicelli incorrect?

I thought tambi is noodles or pasta...this thought is incorrect?

Vermicelli is just a specific kind of very fine noodles. I've also seen tambi used to just translate any pasta, but maybe the typical kind of tambi in Swahili-speaking areas is most similar to "vermicelli" ... just my guess.

Never heard of vermicelli.. I thought he said dhambi and duolingo was getting religious...
