What is the most appropriate word for ‘GanDeri’ in English?

I have puzzled over this for long and asked a number of friends. In fact, this is a re-post of the question I had posed at this blog 3 years ago. The best I got was ‘sugarcane cut-piece’; where ‘cut-piece’ is itself a peculiar Pakistani-ism, if not Pinglish.

Do you have a better suggestion?

    @Adil. If you are acting cute by getting puzzled over this, thats another matter. English has adapted a lot of words from other lanuguages. Evn Izat has made it to the dictionary. So ganderi will remain ganderi . ANyways nice try acting cute.
