I just so happen to be writing the documentation up for an A&S entry of a
leguminous inclination, and have all my books laid out in front of me.

Some varieties of legumes in use in medieval India:
Pigeon peas, mung beans, urad (black gram), green lentils, pink lentils,
moth beans (Vigna aconitifolia), chickpeas, and cowpeas.
