Yummmm Biriyani...can go crazy over this...tempting one.

Biny, I couldn't fix the issue at Kitchen Tantra dot com, cause...the blog's content is over flowing. So am updating my latest recipes from new blog - it will serve as part II www.kitchen-mantra.blogspot.com

Am kind of settling down at this new junction...meanwhile will look out for a way to import the contents into fresh domain.

Malar Gandhi said...

We can't fix certain error's buddy...as google controls the server. Its always safe to have our own domain.
