Laila Basmati Rice 10kg only £9 @ Asda

Found 4th May 2016
Normal price £16.98. Available both online and instore. Plenty in stock today at the Walthamstow branch. Laila Basmati is one of the better quality brands. I've seen this come down to £10 in the past but I don't think the price has been this low. It's probably a seasonal offer as Ramadan will start in about a month's time.

I'm sorry you think that. Myself and my relatives eat quite a bit of rice as it is a staple of our diet (I'm English but of Bangladeshi origin). We all love this rice. In the past I have bought Laila broken Basmati for £5.50 for 5 kilos so this is a very good deal. I even heard one of the shop floor workers in the Walthamstow branch saying they wanted to buy it before it ran out.

Tilda is premium quality rice and is better than Laila. But Asda is selling 10 kilos for £22 at the moment so it's not really affordable for someone like me.

I never heard of a English Bangladeshi origin where you from and why are you English. That's two nationalities mixed I never heard it before what happened please explain
I was born in London and speak English. My white friends in school considered me to be English. You can have brown skin and still be English, or Scottish or Welsh. My parents were born in what later became Bangladesh, so I am of Bangladeshi origin. I have relatives in Wales who were born in the UK and consider themselves to be Welsh. Funny how we always hear about the need to 'integrate' but some do not accept you as 'English' because of the colour of your skin.

Her name isn't basmati or rice by the way...

​Tilda in my and family members opinion is much better, as

a) it doesn't smell dodgy. often these cheap rice brands smell slightly strange when cooked. Not sure exactly why, but can be off putting for some. Like my wife and inlaws.
b) it's white as opposed to a yellowish colour.

That said, I would say this is a great deal for a reasonable rice.

I'll try a bag, worse case scenario I will try mixing some of it with the Tilda basmati and see if that works if not I'll use it up some how....

Iv tried badshah and laila this is very good if you soak it 10 mins before the rice is very long when cooked oO even i couldnt belive the length . You need less rice to cook with as it does go a long way

From the Wikipedia article on English people: "Today many English people have recent forebears from other parts of the United Kingdom, while some are also descended from more recent immigrants from other European countries and from the Commonwealth."

He was born in London (the capital of England), so he is English. England is part of the United Kingdom so he is also British. Your education is shocking. Whatever else he identifies himself as is his prerogative.

He didn't say he was "English Bangladeshi"- you said that. His exact words were "I'm English but of Bangladeshi origin". He has not stated he was 2 nationalities.
Ok for price but pay a little more and get better quality rice

You can't be English. On these 'Asian' deals, English people only say '10 kg rice/ flour/onions? That'll last me a year'

Or words to that effect oO

I would recommend Pearl rice. One of the best rice you will ever eat. Yes, expensive but worth every penny!
Laila Rice is the best. Good find OP. Heat added

It really doesn't matter where you were born you parents could've given birth in China your not going to be Chinese are you. My point is if your parents are Bangladeshi and came to this country back in the 90s then you were born in this country that makes you British but your still a Bangladeshi so I understand I don't mean to offend you in any way.

So you named your daughter after a cheap rice should've gone with Tilda better quality and more expensive

​Layla, Leyla, Leila, Laila...all correct translations. I would say Laila is the most uncommon of those. My wife's name is Leila.

Bernard Manning couldn't have put it any better



Who is that?
I unfortunately have to subsist on a staple diet of rice and noodles as a result of my good wife being Singaporean. Laila is the standard brand we've been consuming for years and it is good quality much better than some cheap brands and as good as more expensive ones we've tried.

I do miss bread though......quick disclaimer for the usual suspects yes I can cook but evening meals are usually done by her as she is home most of the day, whereas work means I'm normally not home till after 6:30
