As I am shielding I now shop online and I noticed this item while browsing. I have bought it a few times now and never has a bag burst in the micro. I add chicken, mushrooms, prawns or whatever I fancy and my husband and I love it. I also add some chilli sauce or soy sauce. I especially love the fact there are no red peppers in it to overpower the taste of everything else. I would definitely recommend it. Very handy.
Great for frozen item!
I really like this rice! For a frozen item that comes in a bag it is very tasty. Review saying the bag exploded are just a bit silly. Always take out of the freezer and let it rest a bit even just 5 minutes then always place in microwave for LESS time than stipulated on the instructions. I did 2 bags yesterday, together in the microwave for 3 minutes, let it rest for 1 minute after then opened. I steamed some sweetcorn & peas and added it to the rice and my two boys loved it. It has a very good taste & texture for frozen rice! I also make my own egg fried rice but this is great for a quick side and you get the chance to add more veggies.
Bag explodes in microwave - very time. Will never
Bag explodes in microwave - very time. Will never waste my money on these again!
Just wondered why it's not vegetarian anymore?.
Great if you can get it - seems to be discontinued
Since another supermarket had stopped selling their own brand of this, I thought I'd give the Tesco brand a try. Slightly smaller pack size than what I'd been buying, but just as tasty. Only problem is that Tesco now seem to have discontinued it, so a bit of a pointless review really. Such a shame as this is a very versatile accompaniment to many dishes. The plain white rice they offer as an alternative is too bland, so it's back to searching again for someone who currently stocks something the same or similar.

Unfortunately I have not been able to taste the rice yet. If you follow the instructions, the rice still manages to explode inside your microwave oven.
Review from tesco.com
These make for a really quick and reasonably healthy snack, or as a side to a main meal. Much easier than faffing about with starchy water and draining rice!
