Our Review of Coconut Steamed Basmati Rice Made by Tilda


Tilda produces several varieties of steamed and dried Basmati rice products. Its foods are gluten-free and can be used in place of pasta, sandwiches and side dishes. Each variety can be used as a stand-alone product, or as part of a larger prepared dish.


As soon as I received and opened the package, I could tell the product was made from top quality ingredients. Its fragrance was that of authentic coconut and I could not detect the scent of artificial ingredients. The mixture also lived up to the company's guarantee that it product will remain fluffy and will not stick.


Tilda's steamed rice mixtures are quick to prepare and earn their reputation as convenience products. They come pre-steamed in their packages and the instructions are to heat the mixture either by microwave or by stove top, with oil. I chose to prepare the rice by stove top, with oil, but will not do so in the future: heating these grains with oil results in a rancid tasting product.

I wanted to get a sense of how the mixture tasted on its own. Therefore, before consuming it, I did not mix the product with any additional ingredients. I enjoyed the final taste of the dish but wish that its coconut flavor had come through strongly. In retrospect, I should have followed Tilda's recommendation of pairing its Coconut Steamed Basmati Rice with Indian spices -- this would have created a synergized effect on the taste palette and would have enhanced my sampling experience.
