Pinto beans. Throw in a few more foods in Hindi, and I'll translate them too, while I'm here; I've got good reference books handy with names in both English and Hindi.

    When posting or editing, click the little icon (image or picture) that looks like a painting. It's right next to the {} symbols.

    Stack Overflow has a relationship with the Imgur image hosting service. It uses them and brings up a mini upload page if you click the icon. Or, you can upload there and use the URL if you prefer.
