Can you help me identify this vegetable?

I was at an Asian/Middle Eastern food market the other day and spotted quite a few vegetables I'd never seen before. After much deliberation, I picked one of them up and asked the vendor what it was. I understood something along the lines of 'tuni' or 'tumi' so I thought: "No problem. I'll get home and google it". Google it I did, in as many ways I could think of (checking images as well) but I am still none the wiser.

So here are two pictures I have taken of 'it' in the hope that some of my fellow 'hounders will come to the rescue and help me figure out what to do with it!

I'm thinking it might be something really common but with a slightly different shape...Many thanks in advance!
