AFAIK never used in canon.

(KGT 84f.):  In terms of texture, Klingon food may be {ngal} (chewy), {char} (slimy), or {tlher} (lumpy), all considered positive attributes (depending, of course, on the particular dish).

(KGT 92):  Finally, the way to prepare a common dish called {qompogh} is to mash ({tap}) a mixture of various types of {naH} (fruit, vegetable), with or without some animal matter, into a rather lumpy paste and then to let it {rogh} (ferment).

PUN:
In the old U.S. TV series "Leave It to Beaver", the Beaver's (Jerry Mathers) big brother, Wally, had a friend named Clarence Rutherford, who was nicknamed "Lumpy". (Confirmed by Okrand at qep'a' SochDIch.)
