Disadvantages Tastes horrible, Total waste of money
About The Product.
This is a Tesco home brand product that can be found in the frozen ready meals aisle at Tesco's, or can be purchased at Tesco.com if you dare. The product like most ready meals comes in a black plastic tray divided in half, in which, one section is for the Pilau Rice and the other The Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce. It is film sealed and the packed into a cardboard box.
This product claims to be free from artificial colours, flavourings and preservatives and made with 100% chicken breast.The meal is classified as a medium curry that is suitable for oven cooking or microwave. It is a 550gm portion sized ready meal that is 655 kcals per 550gms.
These ready meals are available for either £1.69 each meal or can be nought on promotion at three for £4.50 saving you 19p per meal.My Opinion.
The sauce of the meal although still half frozen started to have a small amount of grease starting to come to the surface, at least until it was stirred and then it looked ok again but I did notice the lack of aroma I feel I should have now been able to detect. Then we arrived at the rice, in appearance before I stirred it I did notice the fact that the top of the rice looked to be very dry. I hoped this would change upon stirring and, Oh was I right. It certainly changed, but in no way did it change for the better. There was a huge amount of water floating around the bottom of the rice tray and the rice just seamed to be drowning in the excessive water.I replace the meal to the microwave to finishing cooking it in the hope that when it had finished cooking maybe the sauce would thicken and the rice would dry-out a bit. The meal finally finished and I removed it, ready to serve. Still it totally lacked any aroma at all from either the rice or the curry sauce. I started to serve the rice onto my plate and to my horror; it was all extremely soggy and stuck together in a horrible mushy unappealing yellow mass in the centre of the plate.
