Recently having tried a shops own brand of rice and not getting on very well with it at all I decided the next time I purchased some rice to stick with basmati still, try out wholegrain but pay a little bit more and hope for quality!
Purple packet which has a resealable tab to the top of it. On the front of the packet I'm told that it is Tilda Wholegrain Basmati Rice 'Wholegrain Basmati 'Tastes like no other rice on earth' and the weight is stated which in this case is 500g. Other information on the back of the bag includes being told a little bit about the product, cooking instructions are listed, nutritional information is given as is being told that it is Vegetarian and contact details for Tilda are stated. Nice enough, classy looking packaging this is and it is informative enough.
Small, hard glossy grains of a light brown rice. All it is basically is rice. To cook it you simply add some to a pan of water and seasoning (if desired) and boil and then bring to simmer for about 25 minutes (or until it looks cooked!).
What you get is fluffy, separated rice. When cooked it is soft but not one bit mushy and/or slushy and although wholegrain it isn't bitter or too strong in flavour.
It is a tasty, natural rice and I love the way that when it's cooked it really is perfectly tasty each and every time. It takes no effort at all to cook it and I find that as long as I keep an eye in things and don't let it boil dry or anything silly like that this really does deliver super rice each and every time!
