Hi Doug,


Thanks for writing in :)

Your first sentence is correct. But if you are saying the second sentence in continuation of first then "next" would be translated as "uSke baaD" (after that) and "with" translates as "ke Saath" (along with) or more casually just "with". So your sentence would become: "uSke baaD, gosht biryaanee ke Saath raita aur rotee".


Cheers!

Hi Rem,


Great effort! The translations are going really well. Your vocabulary is also increasing. You would be interesting in knowing that "मोहब्बत" is an Urdu term. The Hindi term for love is "प्रेम (Prem)". The correct sentence formation for your answers will be:


नहीं, मै भारतीय खाने से बहुत मोहब्बत करता हूँ, खासतौर पर बहुत तीखा चना मसला, साग/पलक पनीर तथा दाल


Hope this helps!


Cheers!
