  1. Dorothea:

    Thanks for sharing these nice sentences, they’re quite nice for any Hindi learner. I’ve one question regarding the verb form you wrote, for example in the first sentence: आज खाने में क्या बनाना है? Since we’re talking about an action from the past, isn’t “बनाया” supposed to be used here? Are both forms correct? Is there any difference in meaning between the बनाया and the infinitive form?

    Many thanks in in advance,

      @Dorothea Namaste, Dorothea!

      Thanks you very much to point out this typo. By mistake, somehow I missed the sentence up there because the verbs are pretty similar.

      Yes, you are right. Both verbs बनाना and बनाया have different meanings. First one means “what to make/cook” and second one means “what has been cooked”. I updated the post and now, you can see sentences for both verbs.
