Bought it and I really regret .... not good in my opinion. I'm a basmati lover and this rice just doesn't cook/taste like basmati
Hi my name is M we used Tilda for many years then went into a Nepalese shop and found different varieties to try. I have found this to be as good as the Tilda and Kohinoor.
Other day ordered basmati rice with 30% discount for new customers from Ocado and it works out cheaper with better brand.
You'll see I said that I didn't make it cold!
Certainly deserving of a hot vote I think
The first comment while true, doesn't mean it makes this any less deserving of hot

Max-Power2 h, 3 m agoStandard price for this rice. I quite like it, not as good as their premium one and is a bit more starchy, but keep that out when cooking it and it's fine

Like getting solid advice like this. Good one

This is very starchy and doesnt cook well at all.


That's why you're supposed to rinse rice 1st before cooking, lmfao
one of the best rice
Purchased this once a few years back and it came out very mushy. Seems to need to be cooked very differently in terms of how much water you add compared to our usual brand Laila.
Maybe worth the saving for those prepared to experiment and learn how best to cook it. I'll stick to brands I trust.
I've been using this rice for over 5 years and tried others in between but always come back to this. I purchased this from Amazon on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday.

Same price in Amazon if anyone has prime and wants it delivered.


Please do not sponsor Amazon if Tesco is doing it. Amazon treat our children like slaves.. 55 hour/week! Would you like your grandchildren to work like that???

Amazon wanted to charge £2 on top of my asking price and the buyer was to pay £17 and then gave me peanut after taking the hefty commission. In the end, I asked the buyer to buy via fleabay and she ended up paying less than £17 and I earned 30p on top of the Amazon price! Very greedy. Also, the flour I was ordered went from 6.79 to 7.49 overnight. I was NOT amused.

If your rice is ending up mushy have you tried using Sella basmati rice? Sella is supposedly better for biryani cooking than ordinary basmati. We keep both in our kitchen (though as a pulau fan over biryani I dont really see the need for Sella as much as the mrs)

Totally agree plus laila rice seems to have a very small time window when cooking between being bitty, cooked and mushy
I prefer Kohinoor and Tilda, I find them way better than this Laila rice which seems to have an odd smell
Tilda is the best. Follow by Kohinoor Platinum, but you don't get Kohinoor Platinum range at most places now a days.
£1/kg used to be the going rate for decent non premium brands (Tilda/White Pearl/Zebra).....you could get inferior brands more cheaply.
BUT that hasn't been the case for many months now. Inferior brands or the longgrain substitutes packed under a basmati brand name are still occasionally available for around £1/kg but Laila generally isn't.

Of the various brands we've tried Laila hits th he sweet spot in terms of price and quality. If I had money to burn I would only buy one of the premium products I mentioned in my first sentence but they don't warrant the price when we find Laila gives us as good results at a significantly cheaper price. Having tried some other cheap supermarket brands we now avoid them. My wife is Singaporean so there is a lot of rice consumed in this house

Nasty rice put it in the bin. Dont buy worst ever.
Never got on with this brand when tried it a couple of years back...ended up with mushy rice and been wary of cheap Basmati ever since

Have found Laila as the one widespread non-premium prixed brand that consistently cooks well for us.

Could be the cooking method as I know there are slight variations that can be employed for different types of rice grain.

Who needs this much rice ??

Rice tastes delicious but is very unhealthy. It is full of carbohydrates and convert s into sugar inside body . White polished rice has no fibre . I started eating quinoa instead of rice as it has much higher fibre and and protein content. Other good rice is canadian wild rice but it is too expensive in the UK.

It is not plastic rice. We always eat it.



So many hoax out there.. especially saying the blue version is plastic. I had kohinoor gold, silver and blue version and can confirm theyre real
Big fan of kohinoor since tilda is way too expensive. Its a good purchase
Plastic rice bounces. Once cooked, press into a ball. If it bounces it is plastic. If it splatters, so to say, it's normal. Only eat brown rice anyway.
How does this compare to Tilda Grand Basmati?

Kohinoor and Tilda are top Indian brands for basmati rice. Would not expect plastic rice from them !
