can you identify this very mysterious plant?

When I was a child, an elderly relative was given this very unusual pot plant but no one ever knew its name or where to find it.

It is an indoors pot plant with a large, overground bulb which produces small, 'pickled onion' type bulbs.

When these small bulbs are cut open, they produce a milky fluid very useful against the itch and swelling of insect bites, stinging nettles etc.

I never saw this plant again and wonder if anyone could help me identify it?

Many thanks
