Used to be good but now a bag of cous cous

Writing this review because, as of late we have found that instead of the normal full grains of basmati rice we get broken grains of rice. The entire packet is like a bag of cous cous. There's nothing wrong with cous cous, but this is supposed to be rice. Very disappointed.

The fluffiest rice ever

I tried this brand once and wont go back to Uncle Bens - it is fluffy, tasty and doesnt stick together - 10/10

Rating: 5 star out of 5

My favourite by miles

I always wondered why other varieties of rice seemed slightly sticky, however carefully I followed the instructions. Now I know how other people get perfect rice - it's easy, they simply buy Tilda! I put it in a saucepan of plenty of boiling water, give it a quick stir, then set the timer for 10 mins. Perfect every time!


Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice

Lisa's Tip: This recipe is so simple but gives a huge flavour boost. The rice gets a slightly sweet and nutty flavour so its a perfect complement to Asian cooking. If you are making a curry, fish, spicy stir fry or even a roast chicken, this rice will be a great side!

Spicy Jollof Rice

Spicy Jollof Rice

Spicy jollof rice is a simple, tasty all-in-one recipe that’s popular in many parts of West Africa. Succulent chicken thighs are browned then cooked in a tomato, chilli and ginger sauce. Then you pop in the basmati rice and cook on a very low heat, adding colourful sliced peppers and okra on top, too. So you can bring one big tasty pot to the table and let everyone dig in!

Goan Chicken Curry with a Mango Rice

This curry only takes 20 minutes, start to finish - don't believe the story that the longer the curry takes the better the flavour"; the opposite is true.

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is a great dish to cook with left over meats, fish and rice from the night before and is ready in no time at all. The main thing to remember when cooking this dish is to have all your ingredients ready to go into the wok. Once you start cooking it will all cook very quickly.

Slow Roast Lamb Pilaf

Slow Roast Lamb Pilaf

This dish works really well with the rice and lamb combined or leaving the rice as a separate side dish. It is great fun for feeding a big party of friends.
