The tubers of this plant are used in culinary, to prepare CHUTNEY.
Then this plant might be in danger …, because there are only a few people who think to sustain…plant is definitely harmed for getting tubers, I think they should be rhizomes..
Yes, Sir, they are rhizomes 🙁
Thank you Sir for correcting me :))

Info on the species :-
Thank you Sir, this is a wild herb growing around our school, and its rhizome is used to prepare CHUTNEY for its raw mango like aroma.
