Mumtaz Chicken Tikka Masala £3 to £1.50 at Asda

Found 16th Sep 2014
Had to buy one of these just because MUMTAAAZ sounds like a character from Thundercats. If you're not old enough to remember Thundercats, ask your Mumm-Ra.

Part of the smoke and mirrors trick known as "roll-back", where they make out it's permanently that price before sneaking it back up again later. But not bad for a fancy looking tikka masala.

In this instance..........no that's still a good question.

They are very nice for ready meals. Mumtaz are very respected restuarants. I know they have one in Bradford and London.

Great price for nice curry!

Good find!

Superb currys

Has anyone got a link for this on the Asda website? I cannot find it.

Yummy thanks

I was always amazed Asda got involved with this company they have a terrible reputation with HMRC, planning and plod, 'Mumtaz restaurants. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious' is a phrase often quoted by people visiting Bradford from far flung galaxies.

One of the many best restaurants in Bradford

not discounted on line - disappointed

mumtaz means perfect in arabic

Over-hyped bland and oily slop. Aside from their somewhat dubious local reputation, Mumtaz are all about marketing and riding on the tails on that one 'royal' connection from years ago. If in Bradford it would be one of the last places I would dine - there are countless other and better restaurants.

one of the best and a great price

Mumtaz ready meals are amazing!

Not at Sutton, Surrey

Mumtaz was a great restaurant with fantastic food.
But with success, they have degraded a lot with quality and price.
They live off their brand nowadays.

Apparently George Galloway's favourite is their lamb chops.

Do with that information what you will ... I know what I'll do with it ;-)

Cold - it's halal !

Fair reason. Didn't spot that on the packaging when I picked it up. Aahh blinded by bargains.

Never had tikka masala before, might try seeing as though I can see positive comments about this brand. Hot

I don't mind eating halal meat in currys as thats the way they are made (tradition wise)...... but halal Subways and KFC etc = not worth anyones custom.

A "traditional" curry is NOT halal. The curry originated from india, india's population is majority Hindu. The "halal" curry is to appease muslims who require the halal method of slaughter, there are many indian, punjabi (sikh) restaurants who sell "normal" non halal curry.

That's incorrect, the majority of Hindus are not vegetarians

From what the OP said, possibly Thundercat meat.

Yup, depends which part of the world you grew up in and how strict the first/second generation are. The stupid comment concerning 'traditional halal curry' wound me up somewhat but I refrained from commenting.

'Curry' came from 'kari' Tamil word - not exactly Punjabi or Sikh.....so do not even start on 'Traditional Curry' not being halal or otherwise

Great Find OP, stocked up my freezer already :-)

Their Lamb Karahi is the best I have ever had.

yes and 90% of halal is pre stunned and no different to any other meat except its had a few words spoken over it .. kosher on the other hand is 100% unstunned and is in the mainstream meat products unlabelled. so if youre being concerned about animal welfare you need to check for both . hth

just had to ask - hindus are vegetarians arent they (thats if they follow their faith)

Anyone know where the meat is from?

Hindus are not known for making exceptional curries as they are mostly vegetarians. strict ones come to think of it, especially if you are of the "Jain" variant. They don't touch milk, eggs, cheese, pasta and the like. So for a certain religion or ethnic group of people not to eat meat, thery're hardly specialists in proper curries with ingredients like lamb and chicken.
To further enlighten you... it's muslim's from the northern part of India (as India existed before Pakistan) that know how to make authentic, tasty curries. Mainly around Delhi and the likes. The dishes and flavours originate from the Moughal times. You goto an authentic Pakistani restaurant and you can savour premium/specialist dishes like Biriyani (made the proper way), Nehari (a tender lamb stew), Kooftay (meat balls) and various korma's. Indian food doesn't even cut it. And to further clarify..... 85% of "indian" restaurants in the UK are owned and run by Bangladeshi's... who are Muslims!! I only know of a very small number of eating places that are run by Hindu's or Sikhs and they are not even considered restaurants. More like takeaways with a seating area for casual finger food. Take it from someone who has lived all his life in West London and visited Southall more than 400 times.

Oh yeah..... I'm very real. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Mine just happens to be factual.
I wouldn't knock indian food made by hindus and Sikhs. They make a good muttar paneer, aloo gobi, aloo tikki and saabzhi saag
