Dry Gungo Peas/Pigeon Peas
The Gungo pea, also known as pigeon pea, red gram or tur, is a perennial legume from the family Fabaceae. Since its domestication in the Indian subcontinent at least 3,500 years ago, its seeds have become a common food in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
Pigeon peas are tasty legumes that are popular in Indian, Caribbean and African cooking, and make a healthy addition to any meal. They have a rich nutty flavor and provide protein, B-complex vitamins, and minerals, including potassium. Pigeon peas can be used in a variety of dishes, like Arroz con Gandules, which is a holiday meal combining rice and pigeon peas. Try them in your own side dishes or soups for a boost of nutrition at every meal.
