Guest Post IV

It seems this month going to be a "GUEST POST" Week. Yeah ! another Guest post here. This is from Jay of Tasty Appetite. When i pinged her to send the recipe for Guest Post, she didnt hesitate but she asked me to wait for few days as she was in her vacation. To be frank, i thought i need to give a remainder about guest post after a week but as soon as she back from her vacation, she immediately sent me the post with step by step clicks. How sweet she is... Really I am so impressed Jay. Thanks much...

Without making you to wait further, here comesssssss the yummy curry in her own sweet (You know why telling sweet, b'cos she praised me, Note the bolded line :P) words.... Slurrp !

Main Course....... :)
