Kulthi is one of those legume, in most cases grown in dry agricultural areas. It’s small oval, quite kidney shaped, green brown to reddish brown colored bean, about ½ inch diameter in size. Its aroma is very similar to freshly cut hay. These are very hard in texture and require prolonged cooking time to procure palatable value. It’s consumed as whole seed, sprouts or as whole meal in large part by the agricultural areas of southern India. Repeatedly used as animal feed in India.
