    Thanks so much Sangeeta..


    Hey, Guys. I do not think there is any point in carrying the discussion too far.Vicky, please cool down and stop writing such bad comments. If you think, its bakwas, its your opinion whcih doesnt mean that you have to voice it all over the world. Do you have any personal discrepancy with Chitra?


    please Chita darling don not tell me you do not have jealousy in you!!!!!!! I see most of you on here jealous of each other, that even after liking a recipe of someone you do not give votes to each other. and vote for your self from 11 different accounts. Come on, people before you have posted similar recipes but never got so many votes, those with logic here understand exactly what you are doing." khud he recipe do or khud he vote, bil kul Indian politicians ke tara".
