Alfalfa is type of grass, basically hay. In Hindi grass is called "Ghas".. This type of grass is called "Lasun". So in Hindi its called "Lasun Ghas". I dont know what it is in Telugu. I looked it up on the internet and found that in Kannada, it may be called "Kadure masale". Hope, it gives you a start. On the internet, I also found that in Hindi, it is called "Vilaiti ghawat". Vilatiti just referes to fancy or delicate.

hi,

I dont know the hindi name of alfalfa. Botanical Name: Medicago satina

Indian Name: Alfalfa Alfalfa Leaf & Seed is a very mild, food-like medicinal plant. Since it is so mild, it is well tolerated by a wide variety of people, and has many uses. Alfalfa is a rich natural source of supplemental minerals and vitamins- a concentrated nutrient source. It’s a good general herb for pitta. Rich in insoluble fiber, it aids digestive elimination. Since alfalfa is a legume, it is rich in phytoestrogens, notably isoflavones, which have become popular from soy foods, plant substances that have hormonal actions in the body.
