Sahani comes from Arabic صَحْن‎ (ṣaḥn, "large cup or bowl" [root "ص ح ن"‎ (ṣ-ḥ-n)]), from which also come Hausa "sàhānī̀", Turkish "sahan" and Greek "σαγάνι" (sagáni).


so for the mobile app there are several examples where it shows images of plates with a question "How do you say Dish?" and when you enter "vyombo" it tells you that the answer is supposed to be "sahani" I've reported each of them several time and every time it asks me how to say dish or dishes I enter "vyombo" and if the question is accompanied by plates it invariably states that the answer is supposed to be "sahani" ... since there is no place to discuss it in the mobile app I am entering this discussion everywhere I can find "Sahani" or "vyombo" on the website... I don't think the error shows up in the website version anywhere but I will keep looking just in case....


Sahani means plate or dish (according to my dictionary), but dishes was not accepted as a correct answer here. I have reported it since in another task dishes was the only correct answer for sahani.
