  1. The only reason I visit your blog is to see the updates on Immigration related topics. And you guys do a great job of providing those updates..

    But for heavens sake please create a separate blog for your recipes. You go to Best Buy or Fry's and find that they decide to stock all their front shelves with fresh produce and vegetables and ask you to check in the back if you are interested in buying a flat screen TV. Can you imagine how annoying that would be ? Its the similar experience when I visit this blog and see a new recipe on the top..

    1. Thanks. We will surely take that suggestion, if and when we convert this personal blog to commercial website.

  2. Exactly..Please put a separate link for you can see there are always 0 comments for your blogs on recipes..

    1. There are labels on the right, you can always click on that. For example, "green card".

  3. Love this recipe. Going to have to try it….
