Something not right with this rice
It smelt and tasted extremely musty and stale, couldn't eat it.
Never had a problem with this rice but the one we bought straight to the bin. A waste of food after making a big veg rice for 4. It was stale and tasted so bad!
mouldy taste (never had that with Tilda) BBE date 2023, had to be binned.
Would not buy
I put it in the bin never used, I could see black grit and it looked like to much dirt and black bits in it, it was dated to 2023
Agree with mouldy musty verdict too
I support what other customers say about musty mouldy smell and taste. I have mould allergy and special dietary needs. Would be so much more easier to be able to do all the shop in tesco and not have to look elsewhere for rice. I commend others for speaking up helps solidarity and confirmation.
Easy cook takes LONGER to cook than normal Basmati
Never been able to tell the difference between Tesco "Easy Cook" rice and thier normal cook rice They both seem to cook the same with my routine of washing in a glass bowl covered with 2 parts water kettle boiled water then 12 mins microwave and rinsed in boiling water in a sieve. Finally looked up Tesco cooking instructions of the easy and normal cook they are both the same except that the easy cook takes 3mins longer to cook - YES LONGER: Tesco Easy Cook Basmati Rice 1Kg: Instructions: Rinse 75g of rice per person in a sieve in cold, running water. Place in a saucepan with 175ml of water per person and add salt if desired. Bring to the boil and then cover and simmer gently for 13-15 minutes or until the rice is tender. During cooking add more boiling water from a kettle if necessary. Drain thoroughly in a sieve and rinse with boiling water. Fluff up with a fork before serving.

Disgusting smell, returned two bags
Have taken back 2 bags, this ty[e and the easy cook type as they smelt damp musty & moldy. I can see I'm not the only person who has had this experience. Replaced 2nd bag last Tues with another brand and that was terrible too. Can only assume that Tesco are not storing it properly as every bag was well within use by dates. Also amazed to see that Tesco have not responded to these bad reviews.
We bought this rice in two different tesco stores and both smells mold!!! Now I read here so many people already complaint about same issue. Why does Tesco not take this molded serie out of it’s range?
Awful, musty smell...

Authentic, great taste
Great product, really authentic taste and aroma. No different to Tulsa or Lanka. Would thoroughly recommend!
