  1. khesari

    Lathyrus sativus, also known as grass pea, cicerchia, blue sweet pea, chickling pea, chickling vetch, Indian pea, white pea and white vetch, is a legume (family Fabaceae) commonly grown for human consumption and livestock feed in Asia and East Africa. It is a particularly important crop in areas that are prone to drought and famine, and is thought of as an 'insurance crop' as it produces reliable yields when all other crops fail. The Serra de'Conti Cicerchia is included in the Ark of Taste. The seeds contain a neurotoxin that causes lathyrism, a neurodegenerative disease, if eaten as a primary protein source for a prolonged period.


  1. khesari

    Khesari is a type of lentil, also known as grass pea or chickling vetch, predominantly cultivated in parts of India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Its scientific name is Lathyrus sativus. The khesari lentil can grow in poor soil conditions, making it a crucial crop in regions facing difficult environmental conditions. However, if consumed in large amounts over a prolonged period, it can lead to a neurological disorder known as neurolathyrism due to a toxic amino acid it contains.
