   Organic Moth Dal

Product Type - Moth Dal
Botanical Name - Vigna aconitifolia
Family Name - fabaceae


The Moth Bean is a hot weather, drought resistant legume and this fact is supported by its well developed tap root system. The Moth Bean plant flourishes to a full growth in short day lengths. It does not tolerate water logging so much so that the plant hardly requires any irrigation and thrives well in well drained and light sandy soil. It shows slow growth initially but catches up on the vegetative development rapidly later. The Moth Bean plant hardly faces any kind of threat from pests and diseases. One of the major reasons owing to this may be the kind of environment it is grown in.



Moth bean plant, 10-30 cm tall, is a hot-weather, drought-resistant, ground-hugging hairy plant that resembles a small mat. There are up to 12 trailing main branches, 60-130 cm long, developed from short erect main stem, 10-40 cm long, and forms densely matted, horizontal clump. Terminal leaflet has 5 acuminate lobes and lateral leaflet has 4 lobes. The bright yellow small flowers are borne on hairy branches, and later develop into 5-7.5 cm long cylindrical smooth pods. The pod is brown or pale gray when mature, with each pod contains 4-9 seeds. The oblong seed, 3-4 mm, is light brown to dark reddish-brown in color. Inner meat is golden yellow with an earthy and somewhat nutty flavor for main dishes, side dishes and snack food. Moth beans are eaten as a sprout, or as a dhal (the hulled bean).
