Tilda Pure Basmati Rice 4Kg (reduced to £6 from £10) at Tesco

42
Found 26th Mar 2016
Usually the cheapest is always at my local Asian supermarket for a bag of 20kg for around £35-40.

But this works out at £30, which is a bargain for the best basmati rice (in my humble opinion). In store and online.

£1.50 a kilo here … £1.50 a kilo here toohttp://groceries.asda.com/product/basmati-rice/tilda-pure-basmati-rice/33560


Which is their normal price, so even though this is for a smaller quantity the price is nothing special. Tesco also dropped it to this price several times last year, so it's not that special for them either.
As for it being usually / always cheapest at the local Asian supermarket, that's clearly not the case. A good deal but not a hot one.
good find op, heat added
b and m have always been selling tilda at £1 a kg go there if possible people ....

Not a normal price for Asda to sell 10 kg for this price. usually its £20-22 from what I have noticed. Yes it has been this price few times last year but still a hot deal. Not everyone is lucky to be near cheap asian supermarkets, therefore it is a hot deal for lot off us.
I agree it is a deal because you don't normally get this over-priced basmati rice at this price. There are so many other better options like Badshah, Laila, Kohinoor etc...

Hello Kzee,

What would you recommend as an alternative and where?

Works out £1.50kg. B&M 500g packets come in at £1 98kg.
You can't really compare told to leila etc.. it's like comparing Heinz with tesco value. It does the job but.. you get my point.
Great deal, I've picked up 2 and plan to get more on Tues.
You can get vettee basmati rice 10 kg from asada for £7 much better rice.

Do you mean the 5KG bag?
Also Wholefoods and many Chinese shops in London sell good quality basmati and Jasmine coloured rice which is good for health.

My point was my own and I stand by it, but when an argument is weak the famous "us" appear. How many here have voted for you to represent them?

Bought some Tilda when it was reduced to clear in Tesco, have since tried two other brands from same store and have to say, the Tilda has a beautiful smell compared to the others, it definitely seems like a better product. I'll definitely be buying some of this to stock up, thanks for posting!
Why on earth do people post prices for long grain when the deal is for Basmati? Is it because UK literacy levels are at their lowest ever?
I must be illiterate

Is basmati not long grain ?

Yes but not all long grain is basmati.
Knowing how this is stored, I won't be eating Tilda rice again. :O
Someone in front of me cleared out the shelf and the back store too.!15 bags. :(((((( she won't even part one.........grrrrrrrr
in a rat infested latrine

along with everything else from Tesco ?
Is this any good for making Rice Krispies?

I know - that's why there are no chinese people as their diet mainly consists of white rice and that's why they were all wiped out centuries ago.
