    The Marathi word for Pyaaj (we say it with a jeem) is Kaanda, but I have seen that almost everyone understands both words. Generally, even Non-Maharashtrians in Maharashtra use kaanda, and even some communities in Rajasthan

    It looks suspiciously close to the Panjabi <ganḍhā> (said with a rising tone) and <gaṭhā>. <pyāz>/<pyāj> (I always say the latter) is also used.
