  ID from colloquial name

As there have been several recent posts regarding the identification of
items by their colloquial names, I recently picked up what appears to be a
taro-like tuber, fairly rounded (although some others were more elongated),
about 2.5"/6cm in diameter. It was in an Indian grocery store and the box
was marked "ARWI (Terra Root)". Is anyone familiar with this designation.
