Between thanks to my school buddy – Pavithra for teaching me this recipe, ever since this has been a YAY @ my home!

[Liked the flower in the pic – it’s called May flower / Football lilly (Scadoxus / Haemanthus multiflorus), as it blooms only in May. I see them in my garden every May (there where 17 blooms this time!) & feel the plant gifted it for my b’day ☺️ . Btw a lady accidentally hit the plant and 1 flower dropped 😐 hmm so preserved it as seen in the pic.]
