    This is below the typical 2020 sale price of £2.30. Hot! The biryani is not great though after the recipe was changed a few years ago.

    It’s ok as a one off but it doesn’t taste like Indian food at all. It’s slop to be honest.

    Pretty sure Chicken Tikka Masala originated in Scotland and Balti in Birmingham (edited)

    Balti is nice. Had one last night.

    TBH I always avoid the ready meals that include rice. It's SO easy too cook yourself, and it seem silly to be paying for it. (also, I'd rather have a nice naan instead...)

    Handy when invited to MIL for dinner.

    There's not one Indian ready meal that tastes like a takeaway curry.
