Th (y) nkQ I'm not very fussy on what rice to use when it comes to boiled rice coz l add abit of butter to it to make it abit more decandant lol (only basmati of course) But when it comes to Pilau or Biryani I've always saw my mum use Tilda in late 80s lol <3 So l followed tradition & used one rice for boiled and another (Tilda or Veetee which ever was on offer lol) for Biryani & Pilau... (y) My inlaw desperately tried 2 get me to change to pearl but to be honest as long as its basmati rice and has long white slim grains l can cook it pretty fine (angel) (not like my inlaw whoms rice is mushy!) (excited) ThankQ soo much to everyone for letting me know their experiences with this rice... <3 (angel)
Reminded me of this guy (lol) (lol)
Just taught myself a wonderful Pilau recipe from Youtube.. and been going through Basmati Rice like crazy.. Day old rice is the trick. Best thing is I don't buy rice from the takeaway anymore.. just make mine ealier in the day and reheat... for 5 rices from the Indian it saves around 20 quid minus about £5 cost making it myself... Mushroom pilau yummy.
It's suitable for everything biriyani, pilau or boiled rice . We have been using this brand past 12 years.
Lidl Taste of Basmati Rice Difficult to get Basmati at this price just about 1.10 per kilo. Excellent Bargain
Once you go black and white, you don't go back (lol) (lol)
Nothing but zebra will do for me.. once you go zebra you can't go back (lol)
Rice nowadays contains high levels of arsenic, to mitigate that and get fluffier rice, soak overnight in water and drain and rinse well.
If anyone wants to try a different type of rice I HIGHLY suggest Arirang or Fortune Fu Lin Men Pearl Rice.
You'll have to let me know what that is. I generally love sweet paans. The beetlenut must be shredded for me, as I've not got the strong teeth of bengali aunties!. Evolved over thousands of years of paan eating.
Mine love grapes as well. Any meats will cause a fight. These are ultimate manipulators - give me begging eyes, pretend to have just laid eggs, CLUCK, CLUCK and made a racket when they know I'm nearby even though they have just been fed. They really know how to make me feel inadequate! LOL!
Ha mine do the same thing. Especially with tomatoes, grapes, and cucumbers. I literally have to show them my empty hands so they leave me alone.
To tell you the truth, it did come across my mind. At least, I know what they eat. They never like anything I give them and yet they fight like thugs and then look at me, as if saying: Is that all? :D
Definitely in store only, has been running for a while though as another user pointed out will end today.
Ben's original, they've dropped the Uncle (Tom) connotations, is fatter and shorter and less sticky with little fragrance. Asian rice is finer, longer and more fragrant, and requires less water and is more sticky
Superb rice, been using it for years. As with everything else price has gone up by a £1 than last year but worth it. Heat Op (y)
Great rice, hard to find stock usually!

Basmati rice 2kg - £1.90 at Morrisons on Amazon (£40 minimum spend)£1.90Amazon Deals
You hardly ever see a deal of basmati rice for less than a £1 per kg, so here you go! The only caveat is that it's Amazon -> Morrisons so you need to spend £40.. But on the good side you …
I agree that Costco are not showing online but it is in store ?? Tilda is in stock in Stevenage (13/02) and it's less than £16 for 10Kg They also have 5Kg Aunt Caroline Rice for around £7.50 2 Great buys TBH!
Good deal considering the RRP. What's the advantage of this over other brands? I recently got 10 kilos of Humza basmati in Morrison's for £10.50. What makes this one a deal at twice the price?
Can I ask which store did you see it in? Showing OOS online
10Kg of Tilda for less than £17 in Costco - great price if you can get it.
