veg korma recipe

Last two days are the biggest busy days of mine..Actually,it was related to fb...95% of the people are active with fb nowadays.So,no wonders!!! Coming to the matter,I tried to change my personal account..But some how it went completely wrong and again I created new account with name mahaslovelyhome..Again added all the bloggers and friends.
While I was on fb one of my co-blogger(also a good person and friend) asked about the fb profile matter.When I explained every thing,she gave a solution and I got my 2 fb blog pages back.Almost the 2 whole days I spent with I-pad to add friends,to join in groups..Because of these all, I was tired and feeling feverish from last night.Also,it was increased by this foz weather which is very cold with strong winds.Oh.god!!! Decided to never spend lots of time again with fb.. BY the way Thank you so much Venisri..You saved me..Love you!!!
