General definition (in Hinduism)

[Tandula in Hinduism glossaries]

Taṇḍula (तण्डुल, ‘grain,’ especially ‘ rice grain,’) is mentioned very often in the Atharvaveda and later, but not in the Ṛgveda. This accords with the fact that rice cultivation seems hardly known in the Ṛgveda. Husked (karṇa) and unhusked (akarṇa) rice is referred to in the Taittirīya-saṃhitā.
