    Horse gram

    Horse gram is a type of legume that is often referred to as a pulse. Often used as a basic ingredient in food for livestock, horse grams are also used in a number of dishes that are served to humans as well. With a range of color and texture that can be very pleasing, horse grams may be prepared in a number of ways. Horse grams are an oval shaped bean that is usually thin and relatively small. In color, there is some variance. Horse grams are found in shared of brown, red, and black, with the hue ranging from a pale to a deep shade. The taste of horse grams is best described as earthy. With a natural flavor that is somewhat like a cross between a black bean and a kidney bean, horse grams lend themselves very well to absorbing the flavor of different types of seasonings. Considered a very common food for both humans and livestock, horse grams do not enjoy a high reputation. Owing to the essentially earthy taste and the ease with which the beans are grown, horse grams are considered to be most appropriate for consumption by people with limited financial means.
