In a carbie, it means the FICD is dead. But in an EFI, the FICD is optional, non existent in most cases. It can be added, but doesn't solve the underlying problem.
Try cleaning the throttle body 1st - this can be easily done with a can of throttle body cleaner available @ Brother's. Then replace the spark plugs as they get quite soiled after that.
If that doesn't suffice, adjust the idling (via the idling screw located somewhere close to the throttle opening)
until you get a stable idle while the AC is on & off.
I'm not too familiar with the technicalities of the EFI system as I'm a carbie user
But the principles are similar just as our engines are

may i know what mean by clean throttle body? can i do it myself? is it very hard?
easy way, go Brother's buy a can/bottle of throttle body cleaner... pour it into ur fuel tank and drive like normal... the solution will help clean the throttle body as it passes through it...
hard way, send to mechanic and have ur TB removed to be cleaned throughly... this is the most effective way, but cost a little bit more as well...
