      Very interesting recipe. Is it common in that part of South Africa? Incidentally, in Northern India especially in the hilly regions near Himalayas, this is prepared during festival times and known as Puva (pronounced as poowaa). I feel happy with this similarity as I belong to that part of India. Thanks for posting.

      My wonderful Ruby, thank you for your engaging comment.

      Cardamon is also better known as "elachie", on shop shelves they sell it named "cardamon", it's a very aromatic smell and wonderful flavour of spice.

      The look of this spice is on my sugar and spice article, where I provide the reasons as to why I use the different spices to all my recipes.

      Not at all, you go right ahead and add the egg if you prefer, however the milk binds and holds all the ingredients still providing the fluffiness.

      Appreciate your comments always

      Take care, keep well and be safe

      Hi Liz

      There seems to be a technical glitch, second recipe which Hubpages say will be adjusted on their side, as it keeps resetting itself but they haven't adjusted as yet.

      I agree Liz, eggs are scarce and when found on the shelves the price has now doubled.

      Since I made the recipe and the family enjoyed it so much, I am making it almost everyday with the lockdown.

      So quick and easy

      Appreciate your comments always

      Take care, keep well and be safe

      They look really good. What is cardamom powder? Would it hurt them if I added an egg?

      I'm not sure how the comments section ended up here. But this is a great recipe for lockdown, especially as eggs can be hard to get sometimes.
