Badshah Superior Basmati Rice - Pet Jar (5Kg)



Pretty cruel to animals in my opinion. If you want to be a vegetarian, that's fine, but you don't have to force it on the dog! :-D

Sorry cold for me. Price reflects the quality - others like Tilda, Natco etc are slightly more expensive but by far superior in quality. Worth the extra spend.

I dont beleive so. I have tried all rices over my 27 years coming from a pakistani background, and I been in a few pakistani kitchens/restaurants in my time. Tilda is not a popular rice with pakistanis in general.

To be honest, all the higher price rices are of comparable quality, just make sure its pakistani basmati and at the higher price range, tilda is just overpriced because of the marketing.

And lol at natco rice.....

i have tried so many cheap so cold 'BASMATI RICE'.
yes you might as well spend little extra and have REAL Basmati rice.
after all how much rice will you need in a week?
sorry . cold

for people like me whose diet normaly consists of rice meals twice a day- everyday basmati is fine. I'm not voting on this because I've found Tesco deals tend to be store specific (targetting large asian towns?). There are 2 large stores in Cardiff & I've found it impossible to get the previous basmati rice offers simply because they dont stock them. Good if you can get it

My experience is the same with the comparatively large Tesco store in Cambridge (not very ethnically diverse here either). But actually, nine out of ten times, none of the offers I see on this website will appear in this store. It's disappointing. I get through a lot of basmati!

Disagree. Tilda is expensive for no reason , no difference in quality.

Asian folks don't buy Tilda at all. We buy Akash , Badshah, Laila,etc. from Indian shops which are proper Indian/Pakistani basmati rice.

Yes,I am Asian. I know my rice damn well.

I buy Tilda. I prefer it to any other brands.

It is expensive for rice. I have tried Badshah and Laila but found they didnt cook as well. Tilda rice tends to stay seperate and doesn't clump together like cheaper non-basmati rice (or even cheap basmati rice).

But maybe I'm a schmuck for Tilda's marketing.

Well, I'm 1 Asian who does buy Tilda from a "proper" Indian/Pakistani shop.

This is not discounted on tesco.com

Then you are a fool , my friend. Or don't know how to cook rice properly.

Some like PG Tips, some like Tetley, others like Twining.

It's the same with rice. Each to their own.

Badshah use to be one of the very best karnal basmati rice just like how peal white use to be. They then dropped the quality be mixing the rice with different & lesser gains of rice when there product gets popular. Tilda rice is fine for plain boiled rice, but if your doing biryani or pilau you need a basmatie that has a grain that is longer & cooks better for these types of dishes. I'll give that Badshah a go again hopefully it's back to how it use to be. The UK food agency knows that the rice is mixed with different varieties because they have checked the DNA. We the consumer is being conned it's about time we have a proper grading system for the types of Basmati rice we are buying & companies being fined for foul play.

hmm none is kingston park newcastle

These days Basmati rice is eaten by all n sundry. I know a lot of Asian folks (inc. Indian n Pakistani) who buy Tilda and other better quality brands. They all know their rice too esp. the mothers....

It's good for the price but better around. My Asian friends would have cleared out the Tesco shelves in no time had this been good quality. Enuff said.

The store in Bar Hill just up the A14 has a world food aisle that these deals are probably available in.

Then again the extra petrol to travel the 6 miles there and back probably outweighs the benefits.

Voted hot. I will be buying these as almost running out.
As for quality, those who have extra cash and believe that price decides the quality should go for Tilda. For others who are on this forum to save money, this is a tried and tested excellent quality rice from Punjab, and a hot deal :thumbsup:

some tesco has offer on VETEE basmati rice 5KG £4.99. normally 9.99..
a lot better quality rice than Badshah.......
remember .. you get what you pay for !!!!

Thanks for the headsup on this :thumbsup:
