Typhonium trilobatum, 'Karunai kizhangu' in Tamil. The corm (underground stem) is used (after boiling in salt water to nullify the calcium oxalate rhaphides) as vegetable.
Picture was taken at medicinal plants garden within FRLHT campus, bangalore.

Thanx Muthu, Tanay and Prashan ji for the appreciations.
The corms used to be plentyly available in the markets earlier. For some reasons, they are rarely seen nowadays. I dont think i have a picture of plant with corm.
