Inferior product; doesn't seem like proper Basmati
I've just finished a large bag of Tilda Basmati and decided to try the Tesco version. This Tesco product is very poor in comparison, almost to the point where I wonder if it really is Basmati. It lacks the unique smell and taste of Basmati, in fact it lacks any taste at all, and when cooked in exactly the same way as the Tilda version it loses texture and is mushy and clumpy. If I hadn't used the more expensive version first I might have thought this was OK, but it's vastly inferior. Maybe Tesco gets it from Tilda, in which case their spec must be different, or maybe it's just a bad batch. It certainly wasn't worth buying it such a large quantity to find it was no good.
Disgusting, smells and tastes mouldy
smells and tastes mouldy. the bag I had before smelled mouldy too ... disgusting!
sell by date 2022 but, it was smelt musty/old
Dreadful musty smell when cooked so, we couldn't eat it. Even when not cooked it smelt like mould/ musty. We threw the rest away. We will never buy it again.
Excellent quality basmati rice
Excellent quality rice. Cooks beautifully every time
Rice cooks beautifully every time! I use one cup rice and two cups cold water method. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins approx (depending on amount cooking) you'll know when its cooked, there will be hole peaks in the pot of rice and the water will have evaporated. Great value for money rice, just as good as leading brands and a fraction of the price!
It's such a good value rice, cooks perfectly if yo
It's such a good value rice, cooks perfectly if you cook it right. Very soft and tastes good. I would recommend definitely you try it.
I like it
I use it all the time, and have never had any of the negative experiences described by the other contributors.
as a chinese student, I will recommond this rice
as a chinese student, I will recommond this rice to my firend. low rate of Carbonhydrates, and taste ok. If you feel it is too hard after it cooked, you can put littte bit of salt into the water. white vinegar wii do better. then the rice will taste much better than Tailand Rice or Chinese Rice. 5 STARS for Health and Price

Very bad quality rice. It is ok straight after cooking but absolutely awful if you leave it to cool. Will never buy again.
