Hi guys, my mom just returned from Malaysia visiting my late
Dad's relative. Before I go, I asked her to look out for henna
leaves and pluck some for me if she could. (I have never seen a
live henna plant before so even if I saw one in Singapore I
wouldn't recognise it.)
Being the wife of a well respected first born, my Mother
commanded some respect and awe in my Dad's siblings and
their families. She made my wish clear to them. Now my
refrigerator is filled with a big big plastic bag of henna harvest.
Half of it I set to dry , the other half is still in the fridge.
Any of you guys had the experience of using fresh leaves for
Mehendi. Any recipes, tips etc would be welcome. My hands are
itching to dump some into the food processor but I guess I will
wait for advice from the pros in the forum.
