Tesco Meal For One Chicken Tikka Masala pilau rice bombay potato and onion bhaji

Published on August 19th, 2018

I was embarrassingly excited when I saw this in my local Tesco, on offer for £2 (down from £3.50). It’s so big and ambitious for something you throw in the microwave for a few minutes. Reminds me a bit of the Tesco Meal For One; Sweet & Sour, Chinese Chicken Curry (4 stars – not bad!). I had… [Read More]

Tesco Chicken Korma with Pilau Rice

Beautiful packaging – the two halves snap away from each other nicely, so you don’t have to worry about burning your fingers when you try to get it all out onto a plate. The korma is nice and creamy and the pilau rice is pretty spot on. £2.79 RRP for an own-brand curry isn’t too… [Read More]

Tesco Meal For One; Sweet & Sour, Chinese Chicken Curry

I was impressed when I picked this out for £2 at my local Tesco. It felt big and heavy. I actually had to read the packaging to confirm that yes, it is a meal for one, and I could legitimately pig out on this without any feelings of guilt or remorse. When I got it… [Read More]

Tesco Katsu Chicken Curry

Deliciously crispy chicken coating, with moist chicken breast. Jasmine rice is the perfect level of stickiness and complements the meal well. A good katsu curry. The downside is that the chicken has to be cooked in the oven for twenty minutes. Bit of a faff.

Tesco Value Pasta in a Tomato and Onion Sauce

Word of warning- takes an age to cook! I wanted a quick meal before my lecture, but this requires 15 minutes in the microwave- I had to return to it afterwards. Decent portion size, but the tomato sauce is a bit sweet, sickly, and bland. This tastes just like plain pasta with a little bit… [Read More]

The mince has liquidated into the sauce, giving the sauce a vaguely brown colour. As ever, the spaghetti is soft. Tasty, filling.

Tesco Farfalle Pasta Carbonara

Very oily. Looks very unappetising- one big splodgy mess. Made some very scary noises in the microwave. Admittedly, the little cubes of unidentifiable meat are quite pleasant. But the rest of it has a peculiar taste- as if the plastic packaging has burned and the fumes have been infused into the pasta. Not a tasty… [Read More]

Not a good curry. Very much like a chip shop curry. Barely any chicken. Doesn’t taste BAD. Nice and cheap, filling.

Reasonably tasty. Actual pieces of chicken, some of them almost an inch long! Nice, easy microwave instructions. Nice idea. More chicken then expected, and more than it first appears. Not bad!

Tesco Pasta Shells in Bolognese Sauce

A bit sickly, small portion size, overpriced, and doesn’t look at all appetizing. However, it tastes fairly good and is a quick and easy snack. Not bad.
