MY EXPERIENCE I have tried many frozen foods.But with the taste we could guess the quality of the food.Surely the quality differs between the freshly cooked and frozen food in many cases. But in case of Birds eye curry, its not. Usually when i return from office, i would be very very tired, after the travel and so on. Takeways always is not good for health. And i am soo much afraid of salmonela's from takeways. So i always avoid indian takeaways. Instead of having takeaway food we could rather go to well known restuarant and have a fantastic food. But other than that, having a best, hygeinic food in minutes is to get - Birds Eye.I have tried many Indian frozen foods. But i would say Bird Eye is the best. Take it from me the good cook. It tastes best as my home made curry. Making a good curry is a bit lenghty process. But in the tired moments having such a good food in minutes is a gift. When you plan a meal, key areas to look at are the amounts of carbohydrate, fat, fibre and sodium (salt), as well as the number of other stuff. Espesially when you cook curry you never have a clue what these would be. These information are shown on every pack, on a per serving basis - so you know what you're eating - and per 100g, so you can compare foods. This can also help you choose lower-fat versions of foods and look for foods with less saturated fat. So I eat less fat from this than from the one I make. I really wonder how is it possible to make such a delicious curry with such less fat. Its really a wonder.
QUICK FREEZING HELPS THE FOOD TO STAY FRESH
Food contains a large quantity of water, mineral salts, proteins and other substances. Quick freezing of these products helps it to retain the flavours, vitamin conent and all the nutritional ingredients. As we all know these deep and quick frozen foods make all micro organisms inactive.

Hope you have got a good informative idea about Birds eye spicy curry. If you like to have a tastier food within minutes, relaxing at home - then i would suggest you to go for Birds Eye. I would say this as a gift i got.!!!!
1. It could say it has generous amount of rice(50 % of the whole packet content). 2. As the name specifies - It is spicy(ie is hot for me but it depends upon the user). 3. The chicken is very well cooked, soft and tender to eat.I have mentioned the amount of chicken as well in the ingredients(13.5% of the whole content of the packet). 4. A 400 gram with rice sachet would cost aroung £1.29
Garnish it with some fresh coriander while it is still hot. If you require extra hot, try some pepper corns than chilli powders or curry powders, else you will feel the raw flavour of these in your mouth which is not that tasty.
If you think it is too hot, try adding some butter or a squeeze of lemon on top of it.

Things off the packet such as cooking instructions and ingredients are really unneccessary in a consumer review...
