    I took/ate only some morsels

    Hi,

    Is "I took/ate only some morsels of the roti" correct?

    Re: I took/ate only some morsels

    It's grammatically correct but not very natural. We don't use "morsels" very often in BrE.

    I ate only a few mouthfuls of the roti.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could say you had only a few bites of the roti.
