and pasta, don't forget about pasta!!!

Go to an Indian grocers if you have one nearby because rice will be a lot cheaper than supermarkets.

i am dreadful at cooking rice but tesco have their own easycook and even i can make it

I get mine from Netto, hooooge bags.

Shengis;2024586

Did I say it wasn't? Just pointing out other options ;-)



absolutely. well done sir!

Good deal. Also available on-line for £2.59.

I don't know about the difference in quality, but Asda sell their own brand 2kg rice for around £2.50 as well. We decided it's time to stock up a bit that's why am keeping myself informed about the prices.
Might be worth visiting ASDA if the Tesco deal isn't available.

Tilda Basmati

I used to survive off the boil in the bag stuff till i forced myself to learn to cook rice properly.

Its all about soaking the rice before cooking

or get a rice cooker. rinse rice, put in cooker and 20mins (40+ for brown) later you've got perfect rice.

I dunno how much long grain usually is but basmati has gone up loads recently - from £5 per 5kg to £7.50 per 5kg. I blame the french.

If Thailand restricts exports like Vietnam has done to ensure domestic supply then the price of rice really will shoot up. Although this isn't a hugely good deal, a small stock of rice may be a good idea at the moment, especially as it keeps for ages.

:roll:great deal!!
can believe it.

rice is the simplest thing to cook. Have you got a steamer? Most electric steamers, even the cheap ones, come with rice bowls. If you follow this simple way I guarantee it will be perfect every time.

For 4 people put 300g of white basmati rice into the rice bowl of the steamer. Add 450ml of cold water to the rice in the bowl. Fill steamer base up with water and turn it on for 30 mins.
After 35 mins just fluff the rice up with a fork and you will have the most perfect rice. Don't bother soaking it, give it a quick rinse if you like, I don't bother.

For 2 people do 200g rice, 300ml water, 25 mins cooking
3 people 250g, 250ml water, 30 mins cooking

etc.

Can't expect certain supermarkets to show any morality when it comes to food shortages can we...:whistling:

Go to any asian store nearby and you can get 5kg (Basmati) for £3.50!!

You will be lucky to get at this price. Most of asian stores have increased their prices by 2-3 times during the past few weeks. My parents used to buy a 10Kg bag for £8 only a few weeks ago. Now it's £19 at the same store.

What's immoral about selling rice?

What's immoral about selling rice?



There are people around the world who's income is so low they can barely buy rice to feed themselves and supermarkets like Tesco run promotions to increase the amount of rice sold to people in the UK who can afford to buy any food they like.

The more rice sold in countries like the UK the less there is available in poorer countries the higher the price becomes for people who rely on rice as their basic food. If the supermarkets had any sense of morality they would reduce the amount of rice for sale and have promotions on other foods such as pasta and potato based products that have been produced in the EU or America to help prevent price inflation of rice.

I mean what does it really matter to us if We pay £2 a bag or £3 but to a poor family in India that could mean the difference between a having a meal every day or not.

Maybe they could get their relatives to send them some:whistling:

100% Agree with u.
Sainsbury is doing 4KG bag of basmati for under £5 i.e £1.2 per KG approx,
I bought 20KG today as it's the cheapest available in the market. The rice quality is very good as I have been using it.
People working at the superstores have told that the price is going to increase and there is huge shortage of supply.
Indian store is doing £20 for 10KG bag.
P.S. Dont forget the local stores who have stock but will sell it once the prices are sky high as they have already started doing. Same old stock which they bought for normal rate is now being sold at inflated price.

That is nonsense. The price of rice is going up. That generally benefits poor producers who are finally getting a decent price for their goods.

You are right to point out that many consumers of rice are poor and that the increased price is going to cause them hardship.

The correct response to this is to create conditions that increase their incomes, not to try to keep prices artifically low, and that is happening because of industrialisation all over Asia and S America, though much less in Africa.

The higher prices will help to minimise shortages in that producers will have an incentive to produce more and turn land presently unused or used for other crops into rice production. We will then move into surpluses and prices will fall again. Also, increasing poor people's incomes will mean they will want to buy a wider range of foods, just like us. Again, that is a feature of what is happening in Asia and S America. right now.

The fact that people in this country can afford to pay these prices is irrelevant, as the rice market in the UK is a tiny proportion of the world market.
