Sangri or Prosopis cineraria is a small to medium size tree, found mainly in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan in India. Common names include: Ghaf (United Arab Emirates), khejri, jant/janti, sangri (Rajasthan), jand (Punjabi), kandi (Sind), Vanni (Tamil), sami, sumri (Gujarat). Its trade name is kandi. It grows in dry and arid regions of Arabia and in regions of India mainly Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, Gujarat, Western Uttar Pradesh and drier parts of Deccan. Sangri is a small moderate sized evergreen thorny tree, with slender branches armed with conical thorns and with light bluish-green foliage. The leaflets are dark green with thin casting of light shade. Although they belong to the same family as beans and lentils, they are usually distinguished as a separate group because of the ways in which they are prepared. The different types of sangria are all spherical, a feature that also sets them apart from beans and lentils. Dried sangria are produced by harvesting the pods when they are fully mature and then drying them. Once they are dried and the skins removed, they may split naturally.
