Guess the root vegetable :)

Location- S. Usman Road, T.Nagar, Chennai.

You can see fresh green pepper in the farther end, the street seller weighing for me :)

Now, friends, can you guess the root vegetable in the basket?
...and again what I made with this light brown colored root veggie along with the fresh green peppers? :)

Clue - towards the spicier side :)
