Hi Mamta and everyone
Thanks very much for explaining, I am sorry to have put the cat among the pigeons. I know exactly what is meant now, and have explained it to the person who asked.
I take a grain and put it between my front teeth, on biting there should still be a little resistance. The Italian "al dente" is the perfect expression, and I think would probably be about the best understood in English.
