The field bean (Dolichos lab lab; Tamil name, Mochai; Kanarese, Avarai) is a legume which is widely cultivated in South India often as a mixed crop with cereals. The kernel of the seed enters into the diet of many South Indian households, and in the Mysore State the seeds are used as a delicacy when they are green for over four months in the year. The haulm, husk and pods are commonly used as fodder. As the kernel, which is widely used as an article of food and considered to be very nutritious, contains about 24 % of protein hitherto uninvestigated and as the quality of protein plays an important role in nutrition, the present work was undertaken.
