Hi

I love the grill ribs. There is the recipie: the most important thing in to buy a good ribs, then you apply salt for grills and preheat the BBQ. Put the ribs on the grill in the maximum temperature and count seven minutes for each side. When the ribs are grilled for each side you turn off the BBQ and wait five minutes. Serve it and enjoy!!!

I have the same reciepe by using cutlets instead of fish

Hi there,
what does typically mean here?
"lots of typically British things"

it refers to some traditions or things that people think they are more common in Britain that the other countries and know Britain with them?

thank you ;)

Hello fluidaster

Yes, that is the idea. You can see more example sentences in the Cambridge Dictionary.

All the best

Hi there

thank you for your nice podcast

could you tell me the differences between the meaning of chopping and slicing, please?

thanks again

Hello again fluidaster

When we slice something, we cut it in a way so that we get a thin and flat piece of it. We often slice bread or cheese, for example.

The verb chop isn't as specific about the result -- it means to cut something into pieces, but the shape or size of these pieces isn't specified, though the pieces tend to be considered small in some way.

I like the verb dice, which means to cut something into small cubes -- this is often used in cooking as well, though beware it is not as commonly used as the other two words.

All the best

I would like to spread idea about the Indian dish. Which is Kerala Banana Fry .
Its So simple to make first you have to chose proper banana to fry which we are using commonly Nenthra Pazham (Etha pazham) is one of the common types of bananas available in Kerala.

Make it slices of small verticaly keep aside , next we will prepare the mix which is used to dip banana and fry .

Method of preparation rice power and hot water equal ration and one teaspoon turmeric powder.

Mix it well and put banana in it then make the curved pan with hot oil and deep fry .

Hi , everyone

Track 3
I can't move the words into right boxes

Hello Lucien,

To move the words in our tasks you need to click on the word and then click on the space where you want to put it: two individual clicks rather than trying to drag and drop.

I hope that helps.
