A colocasia is....

According to the Oxford English Dictionary:

Colocasia, a genus of plants of the Arum family, natives of the East
Indies, and largely cultivated in warm climates for the sake of their
leaves and tuberous root-stocks, used as articles of food.

The rhizome or root of the Egyptian water-lily.

No mention if there is any western-world equivalent to this - anyone up
to trying a baked water-lily root?
