It is a variety of tuber consumed by the Santhal community of District Godda, Jharkhand”.
Date/ Time of sample collection- 4/04/2014.
Location- Village Bariyarpur, District Godda, Jharkhand.
It is the tuber of cultivated Dioscorea sp. In south also it is available. Usually during winter it will be uprooted, the skin is scrapped carefully ( because it causes itching) then cooked, the milky white tuber slices will be very tasty, some people add sugar, milk and ghee to it. About 4 cultivars are available.
it would be useful if you could locate plant from which the roots are obtained, because roots of Yucca sold here in USA look much similar.
