Disadvantages Bit small on the portion size
Whenever I do an opinion on a food product it usually has some kind of bitchy comment about the product itself no matter how tasty the product may be.
Not this time though, I am by most peoples standards very hard to please when it comes to packaged food.
This time I thought I would do an op à la Phil (Lostwitness - AKA - Philroots) and try out one of those dodgy supermarket microwavable ready meals.
Noon (whoever they are) Chicken tikka masala with rice, originally £1.99 but reduced in Morrisons displaying a large yellow 99p special purchase sticker.
THE PACKAGE:The meal comes in a microwave tray split into two halves, in one half of the tray is the chicken tikka masala and in the other half is the aromatic Jeera rice.
The sleeve doesn’t boast that the masala tastes anything like a real downtown restaurant curry, like some ready made meals try to do.
It simply gives you a description of what it actually is, marinated chicken in a tangy tomato cream sauce with rice.
There is also a small orange banner telling you that the curry is of medium strength.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:To cook in the oven:
Pre heat the oven to 190oC / 375oF / gas mark 5, remove the sleeve and pierce the film on the tray (masala part only).
Place the tray onto a baking tray in the oven and cook for 40 minutes if the product is frozen or 25 minutes if the product has been defrosted.
Remove the sleeve and pierce the film lid on the tray (masala part only). Microwave on full power for:Microwave wattage:

What can I say? This has to be the best, frozen curry that I have ever tasted (sorry Phil but I doubt that any of your Tesco efforts will even come close).
The masala sauce has a very creamy texture and houses a strong tomato taste.
I know I am sounding like I’m almost at the peak of an orgasm here but I really can’t say enough good things about this delicious curry.
It is spicy, without being too hot and so it will suit even the most delicate of palettes.
I have never heard of any of Noon’s products before let alone tried any until now.
I would however, have no problems in highly recommending it to anybody.
If you have any questions, comments or complaints about any of Noon’s products, then you can drop them a line at,Noon products LTD,
Sadly, they don’t have a contact telephone number or an up and running website but I doubt that after tasting one of their products, you will have any complaints.Thanks for reading and enjoy.
