Kiazi, viazi was probably borrowed from Malay keladi ("yam").
Interesting. I'm Malay and I didn't realize the similarities
Isn't rice "mcheli"?
'Mchele' is uncooked rice, 'wali' is cooked rice
I said "Potato and rice" but it was rejected.
Potato would be "kiazi". "Viazi" is plural, so that translates to "potatoes"
