Prepare & Use

How to cook:
Allow 60g of uncooked rice per person (approx. ½ cup).
1 measure dry rice: 2 measures water.

For best results we recommend you soak the rice in cold water for 30 minutes, then rinse in a sieve with cold water.

1. Take a large pan and add 2 measures of cold water to 1 measure of Basmati.
2. Bring to the boil, reduce to a low heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 mins until the water is absorbed. Avoid opening the lid or stirring the rice.
3. Remove from heat, stand covered for 5 mins.
4. Lightly fork through the grains before serving.

Alternatively rinse uncooked rice with cold water. Add to a large pan of boiling water, cook on medium heat for 10-12 mins. Drain well and stand for 3 mins. Lightly fork through the grains and serve

Nice Tin - Great Rice

I wasnt expecting a tin so that was a lovely surprise - my family use different types of Basmati rice but having recently eaten Tilda at mine a few times, my mum admits you cant beat Tilda Basmati.

Badly stored

First off - like the reviewer below, I also only purchased such a large quantity of rice because of the lovely looking tin that was pictured, so I was also rather disappointed not to get a tin! Secondly, the rice had a mild odour & flavour of mould and this is not the first time I have experienced this after buying Tilda rice in a large quantity. I suspect it had just been stored in poor conditions or for too long because relatively few people buy such large quantities of rice. I will be sticking to regular 500g bags from now on!

Nice rice but where's my tin?

Nice rice thought I don't think it's a huge improvement on any other Basmati rice. I notice Ocado have just changed the picture of this. When I ordered it was shown as being in a tin, which is the only reason I ordered such a large bag! Bags of rice are a nightmare to store as they frequently split.

Excellent Rice

Have used this rice for years. Consistently good quality and cooks perfectly. However, Ocado did not deliver the Tilda tin as specified on their website. If the tin is not available, then it should be taken off the website.


Kung Po Beef Wraps

Kung Po Beef Wraps

By marinating the beef with the Kung Po sauce, you get juicy, spicy beef which partners perfectly with in a rice and lettuce wrap. Chef's tip: why not make a platter with beef, rice and lettuce and allow everyone to build their own wrap?
