ASDA Tandoori Chicken Masala

As you can see, very much on the oily side. Tasted nice enough though, and with a hint more smokiness than a chicken tikka masala would have had. The container is reusable as well as recyclable – you can store your leftovers in it with the resealable lid. Handy! Would have again.  

Kohinoor Bombay Egg Curry cooking sauce

I saw this in Tesco and just had to give it a try. At £1.49, it’s a decent sized sauce that opens nicely from the packaging. No eggs in it, of course; you’ll have to hard-boil these yourself. The shelling is a bit of a pain but this isn’t pitched as a quick, easy meal! The… [Read More]

Riya’s Haryali Chicken Ready Meal

RRP of £3.30 is a little on the high side – would appreciate it more around the £2.50 mark. Plenty of chicken, and a tasty sauce, if over-generous with the salt. Looks very hearty and green – not spinach as you might expect, but coconut and mint (therefore quite mild too). Packaging a little annoying,… [Read More]

Decent amount of chicken, but not overwhelming. Reasonably tender but I’ve had better. Quite oily, and a little on the expensive side. Tastes good and authentic, but a little overpriced for what it is.

ASDA Chicken Korma Main

Suitable for freezing – which I did – but no “heat from freeze” instructions, so have to defrost first. Not much flavour beyond “creamy”. You could argue that of any korma, but there’s not a hint of cardamom or cumin or other mild spices. Still, it’s pleasant, and there’s a lot of chicken. The packaging… [Read More]

Disappointing. 24% potato and 8% spinach makes you wonder what the rest of it really is, and the answer appears to be water. Bland, uninteresting, watery. Where’s the creaminess? Where’s the spinach? Other negatives include the underdone potatoes and the £1.80 approximate price tag. Still, it wasn’t dreadful, so avoids receiving our worst rating.

Iceland Indian Takeaway Lamb Kofta Balti

This is like an Indian take on spicy meatballs. Tasty sauce with just enough chilli, and a fairly generous quantity of meatballs. However, the meatballs taste cheap and don’t compare to ordinary cuts of lamb. This is like a doner kebab thrown into a spicy sauce. For £1.50, this is acceptable.

Sharwood’s Korma Cooking Sauce

A bit sour. Nice, quick, easy curry, but it’s not a good one. Would be very disappointed in a restaurant. Ultimately a bit flavourless. Still, it’s better than no korma at all, and it’s only £1. I’d have it again, but I’m not blown away.

Iceland Ultimate Snacks 2 Chicken Tikka on Garlic Naan

Not really a naan bread, more of a wrap. Quite a messy eat. Tasty enough, but a bit sickly. Will give you bad garlic breath!

Loyd Grossman Korma Sauce

Tasty korma sauce. Would it pass in a restaurant? Just about. Nice and easy instructions. Doesn’t look the most appetising of kormas- it gets a bit “bitty” and appears to curdle a little. Does enough for two meals. This works out at roughly £1 per meal.
