  29. Hi, Came in through Babli.You have a nice food blog. Your chicken biryani looks scrumptious.I can almost feel the aroma in my nostrils. But alas I am now a strict vegetarian. So I suppose I will have to satisfy myself by just looking and appreciating.
    I also visited your other blog: chayakkoottu - and left my comments. Its an amazing blog. You don't seem to be updating this.
