Does anyone know how this compares to Tilda basmati rice?
I bought it earlier in the week with the same question at the back of my mind.......it's excellent and equally as good.

It is no way compared to tilda. Tilda much better but costly though
O I love Laila rice! Usually buy it when it’s 5 pounds for 5kg.

Thanks for that trustlondon I normally buy 10kg Tilda but it's pricy. Think I'll stick with it then
Dare I ask if there is really that much difference between rice brands. I think we buy the Tesco own label in purple bags and it is fine. Happy to be proved wrong but isn’t rice just rice?

Well that's what I thought but apparently there is, I would say that their is a difference between Tilda and cheaper brands I've purchased. The cheaper brands have been more stodgy than fluffy

Actually I'd have to disagree, used to have Tilda but switched to this about about a year ago and much prefer it.

I suggest you give it a go yourself and make your own mind up.
I prefer brown basmati over white basmati as more healthy . Also buy in small packets of 1kg etc. Tilda rice is more polished so even lesser nutrients. Full grain rice is more expensive than broken rice which is by product of milling and polishing. Tilda has lesser of broken rice so looks better in appearance but poorer in nutrients due to extreme polishing.

There really is. The cheap rice is stodgy and doesnt have much flavour.

Thank you no harm in giving it a go
Stay away from this new batch basmati rice. Bought them, they not the best.

I guess it comes down to personal preference. Whenever I am cooking the Tesco rice I rinse it several times in hot tap water then again once it is cooked in order to clear away the slimy starch residue and I am always happy with the results - generally pretty fluffy if done right.
If I see the branded stuff on offer I will try it and see what I have been missing out on!!
