identify this spice/root/herb

ssteffes | Jan 30, 2010 07:33 AM

I bought this spice (actually looks like a dried root) in Dubai in a spice market and the guy at the store didn't know the english name for it. He said only the arabs buy it and they call it either "kafor" or "kerekere" (spelling is probably not right). It has a mild scent and flavor.

Does anyone know what this is?
