I'd say tilda was india's finest, although I can't decide if the fields are in the Pakistani or Indian part of the Himalayas.

BUT, of course you can't buy 10kg of tilda basmati at anywhere near £8 - so voted extremely hot.

def hot

Kohinoor still needs to be returned by the Queen to where it was stolen from

Very good rice - Tesco often have the Gold and Platinum Kohinoor on offer. Have not noticed a great deal of difference between Silver and Gold rice but the Platinum is really very nice.

Tilda is a marketing agency/brand their rice can come from various sources within the region.

rice deal!:)

great deal if someone confirms its nationwide

''Kohinoor Platinum is the authentic traditional basmati rice, Kohinoor Gold is the longest basmati rice produced in the world and Kohinoor Silver is the new generation super basmati Rice''
sounds like these are the cheapest in the range? i use Gold rice and they are very nice indeed.

It is nation wide, I sent out 32 packs to one house the 24 packs the next day to another house!

Not sure if this has come back on offer or has been on a few weeks as my other half picked a bag up a couple of weeks back for this price. I forgot all about putting it on here though. Great price.

Eating the gold now... So there's not much difference between gold and silver?

Tilda is Indian but rice isn't really grown anywhere near Himalayas. It is grown in the plains of India and Pakistan. Needs too much standing water to grow basmati, which unfortunately isn't possible on the mountains.

Oh and Kohinoor is way off from being India's finest basmati rice....but for this price, it is pretty good.

I think the gold ones are much better than the silver ones. The 5 kg gold ones are buy 1 get 1 free at tescos for £10. Worth the extra £2 for a better quality

Got some good rice recipes on the kohinoor website :-)

This has been posted before about a month or so back...it has been this price for time. I bought it back in November at this price...good rice though.

Man,just sock the rice for an hour before you boil em and add 2-4 drops of lemon-really magical try it

I use Basmati rice a lot and I can tell you silver is crap. I was not aware Kohinoor has all these bands of silver / gold and platinum so bought the one from local shop as Silver was cheapest. But I can tell you from my dinner last night this is really crap. However Platinum is very good.
Never going to buy Silver again. Dont know how i will finish 5 KG pack!!!

Any particular type of SOCK, and does it matter if it's been worn? (_;)

Tesco have gold ones for £6 / 5 kg. or Akash £5 / 5kg. little more expensive but worth extra in my opinion.
often they do promotions 2 for £10.

Same here OOS in Rochdale Oh well...

Still gave it heat for whoever can get their hands on it. Glad we got enough for winter from the last (first?) time this offer was on. Mum says this is MUCH better than our usual-daily (Badshah)
