This vegetable is called as Bakla in Hindi and Fava beans or broad beans in the western world.  Interestingly while trying to find out more about this bean I discovered that it's name is Bakalaink in Balochi language, Baghalee in Persian and  Baqueela in Ethiopia. So the name Bakla might be a descendant from these languages and it may be an import from these regions.

The Fava beans should be cooked properly and never be consumed raw as they can cause jaundice like symptoms. We like them boiled in salted water. Once boiled well, these beans can be consumed whole with some dip or you can suck the seeds out from the pods just like Edamame.
