Celebrating Mother's Day with brownies

I had guests for Mother's Day. We had a big spread for lunch. It included chicken curry, shrimp fry, fish puttu, yummy kootu & rasam (both made by my sis-in-law), brocolli paruppu poriyal and some vegetable raita.
Also, served home-made brownies for dessert with a little whipped cream and fresh strawberries. I wish brownies were a litttle more moist. It was bc I left it too long in the oven. It very tasty nonetheless. The whole batch disappeared by the end of the evening. It was very easy to make. It took me just 10 min to put the batter together.

Happy Mother's day!
