  17. जानती हैं बबली जी, मेरी सास जी ने कई बार लौकी-दाल बनवाई, लेकिन जब भी ये दाल बनी मेरा मन ही नहीं हुआ खाने का, लेकिन आज आपकी रेसिपी और उससे बढकर तस्वीर देख के तो इसे खाने का मन हो आया है.

  20. Hi Babli! I try to be far from this blog, otherwisw my diet will be ruined... ;) But McAfee is stopping me from entering your Unique blog. Don't know if others have the same problem, but it seems your page might be risky for computer safety, they say... Can you please check if there is any spreading virus over there... Thanks!
