Mango Ginger

I was talking to my son day before yesterday about a peculiar sort of pickle that we used to get in hostel mess during my college days. I didn't know what it was made of, but I vaguely remember someone telling me that the cook used to prepare it using some wild roots growing in the forest area surrounding the hostels! I haven't tasted anything like that anywhere else after my college days, but whenever I think about my stay in the hostel, the taste of that pickle is one of the things that comes into my mind.

Quite coincidentally, today I discovered that the pickle is made of something called as "mango ginger" as I got a piece of this root vegetable which looks a bit like a fatter version of ginger. It was pleasantly surprising.
