wud have liked to see from the side.
could it be  common puffball, gem-studded puffball or devil's snuff-box (Lycoperdon perlatum
German name Flaschenbovist, edible, when young.
Gem-studded puffballs are considered to be a choice edible mushroom when young and the gleba is homogeneous and white. They become inedible as they mature: the gleba becomes yellow-tinged, then finally develops into a mass of powdery olive-green spores.

Nalini

Dear Nalini Ji ,
I don't think this is Lycoperdon perlatum which has a spiny architecture which not so well noted in Dinesh Ji's photos.

Tanay

From its look it may be Scleroderma citrinum.
