Nice study work.... I already have this vegetable in rural area where it is easily available in monsoon.

I see it is a Legumes and some vegetarian cultures serve legumes along with grains, which are low in the essential amino acid lysine, which legumes contain. Thus a combination of legumes with grains can provide all necessary amino acids for vegetarians.
It has a long history! I did not know this about this plant!
Thank You, AshishNimkar!!
