Curcuma amada Roxb.: This is AMADA (Bengali) = Curcuma amada Roxb.

Thank you Sir, this is a wild herb growing around our school, and its rhizome is used to prepare CHUTNEY for its raw mango like aroma.
don't know why the links to the original images do not work in emails, it works in the main document though (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZFScFD5jRpie8tXjj26eZQ3OWXd1cp0qLmwMETEepr0/edit).
Thanks ..., I have never seen the roots of this plant that look like turmeric / ginger.
its called amba haldal in gujarati in case you are one...
your kitchen must have used it to make a kuchumber with turmeric and adu... with a liitle salt and lemon juice??

The tubers of this plant are used in culinary, to prepare CHUTNEY.
Then this plant might be in danger ..., because there are only a few people who think to sustain...plant is definitely harmed for getting tubers, I think they should be rhizomes..
Yes, Sir, they are rhizomes :(
Thank you Sir for correcting me :))

This is wild herb, a larval host plant. But, when I photographed the butterfly, the same time when I did record the plant also, I didn't know the relation. I have earlier uploads too - https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/m---z/z/zingiberaceae/curcuma/curcuma-amada.
You have plant photo?
I have attached three more photographs. More can be found in picasa album - https://picasaweb.google.com/107682878749834997225/PlantsAndTrees?noredirect=1
Found a few more. Attachments (3).
Thank you very much Sir, recently I am growing a few in my homeyard.
If it has the characteristic smell of tender mango it is Curcuma amada.
