Ayurveda (science of life)
Gaṇḍīra (गण्डीर) is a Sanskrit word referring to a type of vegetable. Certain plant parts of Gaṇḍīra are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. The plant is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
