I love making pancakes, It's very easy to make and doesn't need much ingredients. First of all, you need one cup of flour, 1 cup milk, 3 eggs,3 bananas, 2tsf of butter, 3 big spoons of sugar and a quarter spoon of cinnamon powder Mix all the ingredients together. Then take a non_stick frying pan and pour one table spoon of batter, in a circular shape, and cook one side and flip to other side. Allow it to cook and take it back from the pan. Make the remaining batter in the same way and your pancakes are ready. you can serve it with honey or cream and a cup of hot Nescafe

take a bowl
slice vegetables
mix all everything
Eat raw.

My recipe is gralic oil past: firstly you have to roast an entire piece of garlic in a little bit of oil, until it becomes golden, then you remove the garlic. In the meantime you have to boil a portion of pasta, and it will require 10 minutes more or less. After that you have to mix the flavored oil with the pasta.
Speedy and tasty!

The dish is fried meat. I used to cook it quite often, but more than 5 years ago. This is what I can still remember on making it. You will need a pork meat and it should be of fine quality. I tried pork fillet only. Then you slice it in pieces about 2 inches thick and a palm long, but they can be bigger. Then you need a pan and an oil, you boil some oil in pan and add these slices of meat. After they became whiter and a little smaller you can turn them on the other side. After the second side is also ready you can still fry them for a couple more minutes to make them even more tasty and to ensure that they are ready. After you finish you put them on the plate and add some meat seasoning on top. You can also slice some tomatoes and have bread in addition, which would be very tasty. You can also add seasoning during frying.

This a guacamole recipe:
1 avocado smashed
1 lemon juice
1 tomato chopped in brunoise
a quarter of purple onion chopped in brunoise
salt to taste
a pinch of pepper
fresh leaves coriander chopped

Cut the avocado starting from the root, slide softly the knife around the avocado seed and separated when you've finished to round it. Extract the pulp with a spoon and smash it, add the onion, tomato, salt, pepper, lemon juice, coriander and mix all of them.

If you prefer you can add some chops of avocado.

Enjoy your guacamole with tostadas (tortilla fried until crisp)


Again, here too, in minute two Adam says:
"We asked that question to hundreds of .... "

It's logically ungrammatical.
I hope you pay more attention to the podcasts because we learners from different languages (Kurdish, Persian and etc) rely on them for learning. :-)

I also used @tessandravi on Twitter to see tess and ravi but the account doesn't apparently exist! :-(

Except fish and chips what kind of food was more popular in the UK ? CURRY or roast beef Could you tell me please .

Hello Jenny,

I'm afraid I just don't know the answer to this question. The UK is a very diverse place, and different people around the UK have such different habits that it's difficult to generalise. Curry is certainly very popular and roast beef is a more traditional dish which is also very popular.

Sorry, but I hope this helps you!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
