Superb deal, the chicken balti is the best I've ever tasted. First class, normally sells for £3.65 each plus around 75p??? for a twin pack of naan/chapatti's.

Stock up before the 15th!!!

I generally steer clear of supermarket curries (I think it has a lot to do with the package and knowing exactly how much salt/sat fat is going down the eating hole), but just came back from Sainsbury's and they're got quite a selection of dishes to choose from - this is quite a cheap-eat bargain

Had one last night .......pretty high in calories 740cals plus side dishes ......best part of 1200 calories
Enjoyed but would only buy at this price otherwise no way fool price

Sainsbury's make the worst ready meals, fact, and I haven't just tried Indian from them.

This is the price they should normally cost.

£2.50 for a ready meal isn't cheap. These are marketed to look like an alternative to the local Indian takeaway but they are just ready meals.

I'd prefer to get a proper Indian takeaway and spend my 1000 calories properly!

can anyone tell me why ever time i shop at sainsburys they seem to always charge me the full price, not the reduced or multi buy price even when i go through checkout?

so they are the worst you had but you still thing they should charge £10 for four and 2 sides.

Isn't it normally 2 mains and a side for £5 instore and online anyway? Or that only sometimes on?

M&S Piri Piri Chicken curry is the best supermarket curry you can buy.

it does this to me, I have found the way around it on self service tills is go to check out and then cancel and go back to scanning other items. that is the only way I have found to get the reduction to go through.

Tesco sell meal for two... two mains sides and starter selection with naan. That's £5 or 5.50. this Sainsbury's offer isn't a deal.

Their prawn makhani is awesome!

Really not much of a deal unless you are one of the (mugs), I mean customers, that is accustomed to paying the over-the-odds standard price for these. Not freezer-cold, but certainly as cold as a pint of milk left on the doorstep this morning.

Tesco meal for two £7.50, only example I could find with a quick search of site, but noticed in store the other day that the price had shot up.

Every single ready-meal thread seems to bring out these type of posts.

Nobody gives a toss that you don't like supermarket ready meals.

Stick to your home-grown tofu and chickpeas.

Can you get four of them and two starters for a tenner?


No? Then what was the point of your post?

I find that your post is even more pointless; has anyone learnt anything from your ridiculous demeaning comments? No? Should apply for the show

Not a bad deal but Tesco do the 2 mains & 2 sides for £5 and Sainsbury's have done the same in the past on Chinese/Indian foods

Good price. Not a proper indian!

Would be better if it included the meals without rice as well.

Michael Barrymore? Elton John?

Not very impressed by these. The sides are bland, and there's only one veggie option - Balti.

It's easy to make something with better taste in 15 mins so not worth it.

The Waitrose dahls, paneer khandi, veg korma, these are significantly better quality and often on the same deal.

£2.50 per head is pretty bloody cheap - what are you comparing this to? even a jacket potato and tin of tuna would cost you the same

Yea you have a point. Maybe i'll turn the other cheek and start paying £2.50 for all highly fatty, highly salty processed foods. Why spend money on quality foods i'm just to "busy".

Maybe i'll go a step further and buy a tub of ghee, a bag of salt, throw some spices in and eat even cheaper.

Where do you draw the line? £2.50 isn't cheap for this trashy food, realise it' a microwavable meal with the lowest quality ingredients in and you put a price of £1 - £1.50 on it for a one-off convenience.

It' a tricky one, fat + salt + marketing + x-factor = happy consumer. But please don't say "it's pretty bloody cheap" it really isn't.

Lets face it, £2.50 is cheap for a meal. Weather you think it's worth it or not (and you obviously don't) is another matter and your personal opinion. I can't fathom if you have a downer on ready meals or curry in general or is it just curry ready meals????

Geez, once in a while wont hurt anyone and the salt contents of these are alot better than they used to be. I bet your great at a party.

Considering the amount of food your getting for your tenner its a good deal end of.

I think I know where cubensis is coming from, and this is the big awakening that's happening and people are discovering how to eat again and rejecting processed food and saturated fats that are of limited nutritional value...

This stuff isn't so cheap when you factor in ill health and premature death..

I've spent the past couple of years learning to cook in my spare time... here's the sort of thing you can knock up in a few minutes for well under £2.50 per serving (and its not at all hard to do!)

Good on you, but sometimes people that work have to stay at their jobs later than expected. That's when a ready meal comes in handy - it's definitely not part of my regular feeding habits, as I also like to cook things from fresh.
As for saturated fats, the selection of dishes I picked up contained no ghee, and I was able to see from the packaging exactly how much salt was in each pack. You'll also find that ghee is very commonly found in traditional curry house dishes (e.g. pilau rice), which is why I usually go for plain or lemon rice with the request of no ghee/salt at time of ordering (by the way, the oil of choice in these ready meals is rapeseed)

I'm not a crusader of the ready meals by any means, but at least you know exactly what and how much (e.g. salt) you're actually consuming. As for 'ill health and premature death' - I would have more concerne for that lardy sat in a restaurant quaffing back Cobra and nipping out for fags between dishes.


Bravo on you cooking efforts - looks very tasty, though I would probably take a pass on using paneer, due to health reasons


That Chicken Phal looks tempting. Gotta be worth a go at this price.

Thai chick pea curry :


There is no comparison between the food you are cooking and the ready meals. Of course yours is going to be healthier because you are controlling what goes in it. It also takes time to prepare which is why it is wrong to compare it with something off the shelf which just needs microwaving, you are basically paying for the convenience and at £2.50 a head, I still maintain its good value.

These meals may well be high in fat/salt but go to a curry house and I can guarantee their curries will be even unhealthier.

Just for the record I've been cooking Indian food for many years both healthy and unhealthy versions and consider my curries to be some of the best I've eaten. The 'unhealthy' curries tend to have a lot of ghee in them and there is a reason for this, the oil helps to flavour and color the dish as it is brought to a high temperature to a point where it becomes a light brown shade giving the sauce a richness, this is why restaurant curries always taste better. Your dishes look OK if you're a veggie, will never compete with a beef madras though. And I would never put couscous with an curry dish, seems wrong, North Africa meets India?


You can get 2 mains and a 3 starters for £10 at m and s. Much better quality and taste. So yes the above point is relevant!
