About Safed musli
The Hindi name is safed musli. It is cultivated and eaten as a leaf vegetable in some parts of India, and its roots are used as a health tonic under the name safed musli (masli).
Safed musli is a leafy green with a large white flower. It grows in the eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent. This variant of the bean has a more citric taste and texture than its more common variety in other regions. This tastes best when cooked with a mild green masala or red onion with mustard powder and more sugar.
Depending on the country, the plant might also have a chocolate flavor. In India, people usually bake the leaves, and sometimes dry them. When the dry leaves are ground to a powder, they can be used as a substitute for salt, oil, and other herbs in preparing dishes.
Safed musli is an important ingredient in southern Indian cuisines. The leaves are cooked with tamarind, coconut, or saffron and eaten with a lemon or turmeric sauce. People also add the leaves to the dough for making sujol, a tangy form of bread. The powder is made into cakes, garnishes for salads, or consumed as a health tonic.
Safed musli is a cultivar of the bean that was imported from Somalia to India around 1900. Most of this plant has been diverted for other uses, but this spice plant has recently been reintroduced.
For centuries, people living in the region where the husbecould be found have called it black beef. Farmers called it musli in the absence of a proper translation. Only after a century were people able to correctly call the food safed musli (safed, meaning healthy and musli, meaning plants or vegetables).
Safed musli is similar to its Arabic and Somali counterpart, musli. Both are good sources of protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Safed musli is also a good source of antioxidants.
The safed musli grows among the trees of tropical forests. As in other plant families, multiple varieties are often grown, and some varieties grow more rapidly and produce more protein. The black musli grows in the cold regions of India, Pakistan, and parts of the Middle East and Africa. It is known as safed musli in India, musli in Somalia, and musli in Ethiopia and Afghanistan. The red or brown safed musli grows in warmer regions, such as parts of Africa and the Middle East, with just enough water to grow in the hot climate.
In southern India, it is found in the drier areas of Tamil Nadu. It is cultivated for its green leaves and is eaten cooked with some spices and fresh red onions. It is also baked into the most common type of Indian bread, a combination of bread and flour with a sweeter flavor.
The musli is sometimes sold by small farmers and is often found along the highways or inside public buildings. It can be eaten raw with the leaves and as a snack. It tastes best when mixed with a bit of red onion, coconut, or dried fish, and wrapped in a moist banana leaf or small, wet cloth.

A widely used healthy cooking oil in the Indian sub-continent is ghee. It is often referred to as saffli or safflina, and historically it was believed to have a medicinal application.
A common reference to the origin of the term “saffli” in India is from the English word safflower. It seems that the word is widely used to refer to cooking oils without any political significance. However, the term is very much associated with the language. According to an old literary tale from Malayalam, there was once a Persian merchant in Kerala who came from a village called Safed in Bihar.
He was acquainted with many dialects of Indian languages and one of those languages was Malayalam. One of his business partners was a man from India called Samiran, who was from a village in the neighborhood. Samiran owned a market where the farmers from the region gathered to sell their goods. The merchant was very well versed in the language and he was given the title of saffli, which was then changed to safed musli. This is also the origin of the “saff” in the Indian cooking oil name.
