I love a good Indian meal, but these can be so expensive from an Indian take away or restaurant, so I find most of the time I have Indian meals from frozen, as these cost a hell of a lot less, and most of the time taste just as good. Iceland have their own range of ethnic foods, and have an Indian range as part of this. They do a whole array of different meals that you would find in an Indian take away, including Pilau Rice. This rice comes in a tray similiar to those you would get a take away in, and come from the freezer (it is Iceland!). To cook, you just pop it in the microwave after piercing the film lid, for around 4 minutes, depending on the ... Read the complete review

Iceland Indian Takeaway Pilau Rice. There is very little in Iceland that I tend to buy I do not have an Iceland close to my home so it is one place that I tend not to visit very often. However there is one product that they do that is far and away better than any other retail store can do and that is this pilau rice. It is even better than a lot of Indian restaurants have dished up to me in the past, and a product that I will make a bee-line for and have stocked up in my freezer. ~~~ Packaging ~~~ This rice comes in a black plastic container with a plastic film cover and is covered over by a cardboard sleeve which ...

*Product Price & Availability* Iceland Pilau Rice is only available from Iceland stores or home delivery. The price will vary from either £1.00 or £1.25 for a 350g serving. *About The Product* This rice comes frozen and is recommended for microwave cooking for 6 minutes. It can also be oven cooked for 30 minutes. This product is suitable for vegetarians but hade been made in a 'production area' that uses nuts and sesame seeds - so a warning for allergy sufferers. A 350g tray of this rice is 618 calories. One tray is suitable for one hungry person (with a curry dish also), but I guess there was a bit much, so if you ... Read the complete review

~*~*~ Iceland Indian Takeaway Pilau Rice ~*~*~ ~ What is it? ~ This is microwavable Pilau Rice from Iceland.

Ok, so whats so interesting about Pilau Rice? Let me tell you, this is the softest, falvorsome Pilau I have ever had, it even beats all the takeaways and Indian Restraunts in my opinion! Its non greasy, easy and quick to cook and cheap - what more could anyone want? Ideal for busy families, friends watching a movie or students needing a quick carb meal before an exam. Im not a fan of things in plastic trays as I tend to burn myself alot as regular readers of my reviews will know but I did not have this problem with this product at all. You would think Rice would get ridiculously hot and conduct alot of heat therefore causing the tray to 'smelt' and ... Read the complete review
