Tilda Steamed Basmati Rice
Tilda Rice is one of the products you will always find in my cupboards. Their sachets of microwavable Steamed Basmati Rice are so easy to prepare on those days when I am rushed and still need to feed the family. The children really enjoy the flavoured rice served with curry, chilli or stew. They take just two minutes in the microwave and are ready to serve.
I was sent some to try out; Lemon Basmati, Vegetable Biryani, Sweet Chilli and Lime and Coconut Basmati.
They are all made with quality steamed Basmati rice and there are currently eighteen varieties available. They are gluten free, veggie friendly and free from any artificial colours, preservatives and flavourings. They can be used as an accompaniment or in recipes making them a versatile store cupboard essential.
I find that one sachet is plenty enough for two adults. I really liked the Vegetable Biryani rice which is just 148 calories per serving. We served it with a Panneer and Mushroom Korma, a samosa and a vegetable pakora. The Coconut Rice went equally well with a curry. The children enjoyed the Lemon Rice as a side dish instead of potatoes and the Sweet Chilli went perfectly as a side to Mexican fajitas.
For a quick, easy, versatile and convenient accompaniment, the Tilda Steamed Basmati Rice range is definitely a great store cupboard product. Available in all the big supermarkets, the Co-Op and from Ocado, it costs around £1.59 for a 250 g packet.
