Though I have not seen the plant it seems to be a common plant in Maharashtra too.
The trifoliate leaf and its decription in the text given by you is visible in your picture.
Additionally the calyx teeth exceeds the tube here and the pods are 2 seeded hairy velvety and of course there are few varieties with some difference in characters which obviously you are knowing but I am writing here just for some others.

Wild Herb for ID : Nasik : 180912 : AK-1:
A small, wild herb seen in Nasik on 6/10/2009 with yellow flowers.
Leaves resembled the methi vegetable.
Something similar to methi?


Could this be any Trigonella sp.?


in absence of sizes I am guessing this to be Crotalaria medicaginea but others won’t get any clue.


Many thanks for the id of this herb which was taken by me very casually growing in low light.
It was a herb same size as Methi plant, with yellow flowers exactly similar in size to Methi flowers.
But I believe Methi flowers to be white in color, so wanted to know its id.

Yes it’s


Yes it is !
