tila Denotes in the Atharvaveda and later the sesamum plant, and particularly its grains, from which a rich oil (Taila) was extracted. It is often mentioned in connexion with Māsa, ‘kidney bean.’ The Taittirīya Samhitā attributes the bean and the sesamum to the winter (hemanta) and the cool (śiśira) seasons. The stalk of the sesamum plant (tila-piñjī, til-piñja) was used for fuel, and the seed was boiled in the form of porridge (tilaudana) for food.
