I am one of the lesser known beans but a ‘Wonder Legume’. I am consumed as a whole seed, as sprouts, or as a whole meal. I am deficient in methionine, tryptophan and an excellent source of iron and molybdenum. I am sharp, bitter and hot in taste. I am beneficial for kidney and cough breathing ailments. I can be used for curing flatulence, stomach diseases, stones, dry pile pains, sore throat and irregular menstruation.
If you are weight conscious, please include me in your regular diet. Herbal doctors point out that eating horse gram daily helps reduce obesity.
