Alocasia macrorhiza, from Manipur vegetable markets. The tuberous rootstock used as vegetable.

With regards

Vijayasankar ji and Tanay
It would be interesting to confirm that both Kachaloo and Arvi come from Colocasia esculenta.  Y j Nasir in Flora of West Pakistan No. 120, 1978 has mentioned Kachalu (page 7) coming from Colocasia esculenta and Arvi or Arbi (page 8) coming from Alocasia macrorhiza. There must be some confusion somewhere.
