So we have concluded that this product will not be recommended for any of you out there on a diet, but for those that aren’t (or decide that just once wont hurt), then read on and I will tell you all about this little delight I found in the supermarket.
A complete meal for one that contains 800 cals! Luckily for me I didn’t read the calorie content until I had finished eating, or I probably would have had a heart attack.
Tandoori Chicken biryani, made by Birds Eye, in their new “Enjoy” range. Can be cooked from frozen in ten minutes apparently (only if you want cold chicken).I have been tempted by the Enjoy range before, but upon reading all the ingredients to check out any nasty sultanas that may be lurking amongst everything else, I always find coconut, and that’s something else I can’t stand. So when I read the ingredients for the tandoori chicken I was pleasantly surprised to find no coconut.
Considering it was only 1.99 I decided to try it because if you don’t try something new you will never know if you like it.Being a Saturday when I shop, I always cook something quick for tea on a Saturday night. (I’m just lazy). So I decided to try my biryani.
*****HOW TO COOK*****Well according to the packet, you just add 1tbsp oil to a pan and add ingredients and stir occasionally for ten minutes until the sauce absorbs the rice.
****HOW I COOKED IT****I added a bit more than 1tbsp oil because my rice kept sticking to the pan. The sauce was in frozen chunks and seemed to take ages to thaw, but when it did the pan started looking lovely.
I am not going to mention all ingredients, as there are too many, but the main ones being:
- chopped tomato
- spring onion
The smell is gorgeous, but the meal itself looks like lots of ingredients mashed together. My other half said it smelt nice but he wouldn’t try it.
The meal itself comes in quite a classy foil bag, in the shades of orange and purple. (Sounds disgusting doesn’t it, but it goes surprisingly well).
- Tasty meal
- high calorie content
Like I said, try it, because you never know you might like it.
