i, how you guys doing? So, by now all of us about Swine H1N1 Influenza A Flu (ya, WHO has changed the flu name, click on the link to know more details about it) ....and all the countries geared up to deal with it, now a days work as increased a lot since everyone is preparing the BCP [Business Continuity Planning, click on the link to know about BCP :)] as we can't do much to but play our part and maintain hygiene habits. One of my client site already started taking temperature twice a day and we need to sign declaration form incase of traveling overseas (JB is consider oversea too :p). Well let's not talk much about these and let me get into today's recipe.


This recipe is from one of the cooker booklet, I try to adopt the recipe as much as possible but me being me...there is always a change to two ;)...relatively it's a simple recipe or should I say not to so complicated ! If any of you want to try this then pls go ahead, it just so delicious.

  32. Priti, I kind of like the way you grind the poppy seeds and onion mixture first and then cook it. I have a Q though.. whenever I try to do that without cooking the onions first, they turn bitter after cooking the puree. Does that happen to you too? Or is it just me?
