“ Brand: Iceland / Type: Snacks „
I am a huge fan of Indian food and when I saw these advertised on TV I just knew that I had to try them!
I purchased the 75 piece Indian Platter box for £5.00 and inside I received 25 vegetable samosas, 25 vegetable pakoras and 25 onion bhajis. There were also two dips in the form of mango chutney & spicy tomato and onion. The dips were quite small and I actually got some more mango chutney from the fridge and also had a small pot of barbeque sauce as I love barbeque sauce with everything!
I opened the three bags containing the food and then emptied them out on to a baking tray (no platter tray provided). I cooked them for around 18 minutes on gas mark 6 until they were hot throughout and slightly darker in colour.
The vegetables in the three bites were very crunchy and tasty and they very filled up just the right amount so that there wasn't lots of spillage. The dips were very nice and my only complaint would be that there wasn't enough for a good amount for half the portions let alone all 75 pieces.
As there were just a couple of us eating I cooked half of the pieces and kept the rest in the freezer for my next curry cooking session.
I don't have any real gripes with this product, it was easy to cook and I didn't have to use the whole box in one go as it is kept frozen. I would have liked more dips but I did have others anyway so this wasn't a big deal.
I have found that these have kept in the fridge once cooked for 1-2 days and have been fine to eat cold.
I am rating this product 5/5 as I think £5 is a bargain and this would easily serve a good 10 or more people as a starter for an Indian feast.
We bought these in Torrevieja Iceland (Spain) for 7.50Euro. The mango & tomato dips were hardly enough for 25% of pack let alone full pack so I was annoyed there wasn't at least two of each dip. (Front of box shows loads of dip in pots - typical).Everything was VERY hot & spicy which I like very much though boy, it was VERY hot & spicy, not like others I've had so have ice cream handy for afters. I'd definitely buy these again although sadly we left Weston Super Mare for Spain Dec 14th & Iceland was there but on our return Jan 9th it has disappeared & website doesn't mention Iceland in WSM. Nearest is miles away now.
Indian Platter - Iceland
I first bought this platter quite a while ago and loved it. Its great to feed a very large family along side a curry or you can freeze and take out whatever you like, whenever you like it.
The great thing with this platter is that is can be used for catering, i.e. parties. This platter always seems to go down well. There is a combination of things which include Onion Bahjis.
The platter cooks in the oven for around 15 minutes from frozen on Gas Mark 6. You will need a tray to place them on, if you are using it for a platter as the food does not come on a platter tray.
If you are not sure about what is what within the box, then do not worry! Each product is sealed within a plastic bag and has the name printed on the side. You can now wow all your friends with your extensive knowledge of Indian Food!!
The platter is really tasty and full of flavour and is great to keep in your freexer, especially if you are a Indian Food Lover!! ..like me!!
This pack costs £5 however you do get over 60 pieces!!
