Hi Sachin,
It could be Safed musli, though safed musli is longer. It could also
be some kind of asperagus.
Safed musli's Botanical name is Chlorophytum Borivilianum.
The picture of the plant or leaves would help.

Any other feedback pl.
Sachin further clarified as:
"Hi All,
just to tell you more on the usage of these spices (?).
we use them to make 'Laddoo' of medicinal value for women who have given
birth to baby. we also add other dry fruits to it.

so i am not sure if they can be called spices. sorry if i might have misled
you folks.
thanks to all for helping me in identifying these.

Hi Sachin,
This mail is with regard to all the 'spices' posted by you for identification and your subsequent clarification that all these are used for post delivery nourishment for the mother.
All this is very interesting and intriguing.
So I have a suggestion:
If you do know which spice is called in Marathi, can you repost the corresponding Marathi name of each spice?
This would make the search more fruitful and interesting.
Also can you post the recipe for the 'laddus'?
