The seed pods looks like a type of brassica in pictures. I have not grown mustard before,so I don't know what it is.

I was flipping through a medicinal herb magazine the other day at Toa payoh Popular bookstore( at the bus interchange upstairs) and came across a page, yes I think I saw a Rorippa herb. but I just flipped through only, and forgotten which magazine.

I'm not expert. This plant is Eleutherine bulbosa. other synonyms...Eleutherine americana, and Eleutherine plicata. The Chinese name is 红葱, which is same as onions due to its quite similar shape of the bulbs. There are some information that can be found in some Chinese language herb websites.
It has white flowers.

Anybody knows how to cook eat this bulb, and its uses and effects ?
