Wondering about the name of the dish!!!!...No...its not a typing mistake.... name of the veg used is "Name".... in US heheee :)(pronounced as namee)I think its another type of wild yam. I havn't see this in any other shop except Shope rite. It looks like Pidi karunai available in Tamilnadu.But tastes like Karunai kizhangu.
I used to love Karunai kizhangu soo much that i was missing it when i came here but soon saw this veg once in Shop rite ,it reminded me of Pidi karunai so tried this and soon this became one of my fav veg available in US :)
