With the change in eating habits eating wholesome diet is not followed by everyone. Many studies have been conducted earlier but the comparative study on the consumption of lentil in urban and rural area of the different states of India is a matter of research. By determining the average consumption of lentil/arhar in different states of India it becomes easy to increase the yield and manufacturing of the crop in a particular area.
