Product Description

Tilda® Pure Basmati Rice
Tilda Pure Basmati tastes like no other rice on earth - a tantalising flavour and a magical aroma. This delightful rice is so simple to prepare with its longer, whiter grains that cook up light, fluffy and separate. Basmati is a unique rice that grows only in the foothills of the Himalayas where it is watered by snowfed rivers and hand tended by dedicated farmers.
We select only pure traditional Basmati and refuse to blend with inferior grains, thus guaranteeing delicious, fluffy rice.

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.

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!

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!

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.
