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).

ghegh 		be rough
vIl 			be ridgy (forehead)
Hab 			be smooth
beQ 			be flat

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.)
