1 stars

Terrible. Need triple the amount of water and baby food cook mode to be eatable. Smell so bad that I dont want to have my everyday meal. Tesco delivered this rice as a replacement for the rice of my usual choice.

Quality went downhill

1 stars

Horrible. If I could, I would have given 0 star. It tastes awful like mouldy rice. I even wash the rice before putting in the pan but it is just poor quality. Avoid. I won't be ordering this type again will prefer to pay more for a better quality rice.

Dont Buy this if you love basmati Rice its horrid

1 stars

I had to buy this as there was very little to choose from on the shelf , it truly is the worst basmati rice I have ever bought its short grain and not Basmati, it smells and regardless of how it is cooked it tastes awful and stays hard and feels like plastic . It completely ruined my leg of lamb Curry that I cooked for my husbands 70th Birthday . So do yourself a favor and dont buy it .

Plastic smell and taste

1 stars

Children would not eat it, had this easy cook rice by mistake or substitution several times. It smells of plastic when cooking, very strong plastic fume like taste, hard to describe. Even husband couldn't eat it. Binned it; no rinsing before or after cooking helped at all!

Spot on !

5 stars

The rice is excellent,but the packaging is very poor.

This rice used to be very good but lately it's rubbish! Easy cook Basmati is meant to be long grain and to stay apart when cooked right. However this latest easy cook basmati is not nice at all! it looks more like short grain rice and looks awful and taste terrible when cooked....and the smell too is horrible! I would give zero stars if possible. The quality has really gone way way down.

Perfect from the Microwave

Review from tesco.com

Microwave !! Yes. 2 Small teacups and 4 of the same cups of water just boiled. Rinse rice well in a kitchen seive under cold tap water, 2mins. Put rice and water into large tupperware on microsafe bowl. Plastic is best as glass gets very hot. And cook for 10mins full power (900w). Check, stir and cook for 5mins more. Leave to rest !0mins. Works great and enough for 3-4 currys
