[Aroid-l] Tubers bought in a market.

Ok, Ive 'gone in'.

The inside of this tuber is a white flesh, with a purple marble type pattern throughout it. The skin (which is brown, has an almost beetroot colour right next to the flesh when scraped away.
Its very slimy! About as slimy as Okra inside! (Which are also going in the curry!).

Ive had a search throughout google, and 'Kand' as it was labled in the market, seems to be a fairly non specific name for types of Yam and Yam-like tubers.

Could this be 'Purple Yam' - which ive seen on one or two recipes that use 'Kand', in which case its a Dioscorea, not an Amorph. :-(
