Customer Reviews:

  • Why previous incorrect reviews?
    The complete list of ingredients and nutritional facts are completely available down to the last detail. Either they have added them in the last 2 weeks or they were not noticed....more info
  • Not bad, but...
    I just didn't enjoy this product as much as I'd hoped. I'd expected something with a bit more kick I guess. Still good, but not something I'm likely to purchase again....more info
  • Great food
    I used a coupon for 50% off, bought it based on good reviews, and very much agree. Fish curry is excellent, Rice Pilaf good also....more info
    Not bad tasting but it is not for everyone. It is fattening for sure. It also kicks up a funky smell after you cook it. Too many calories packed in each box....more info
  • Not as good flavor as I hoped for.
    It was a hit/miss, and I think I missed on this one. Tastes a bit different than I had hoped. Not that there's anything wrong with it, just doesn't taste good to me. :(

  • Horrible taste. What were they thinking?
    I bought this thinking that it would taste like the Kashmiri stuff we are used to. But this one smells bad and tastes worse. It is difficult to even take a small bite of this stuff. Avoid!!!...more info
  • A GREAT Side Dish and Free Music
    I bought 12 of these and everytime I eat them, its awesome. They heat very easily due to the fact they are already prepared. Each box came with one authentic Indian music CD about 60-80 minutes long. I have practically the whole series. ...more info
  • Tasty yet quick
    It's tasty, fast to cook and a convenient. The only drawback is that it is a little too rich in calories (as a lot of Indian pilafs can be)....more info
  • Piquant Pilaf
    Kitchens of India has an overall great line of Indian foods. Unfortunately,the Kashmiri pilaf is mediocre at best. It ends up incredibly dry.... and while it is surprisingly spicy, it's best paired with a cucumber raita or anything yogurt-based to cut the burn. One isn't forewarned on the spiciness. Even salsa bottles are more instructive.

    On the upside,a CD of Indian classical music accompanies the meal. It's an hour's worth of music with Ustad Amjad Ali Khan on the sarod. It's beautiful and contemplative. The meal is forgettable,but the music is worth keeping!...more info
  • Very greasy
    I hate writing a bad review just because I don't like the taste of something, because everyone has different tastes. But this rice, in addition to tasting awful, is just soaked in grease. The flavors are all there, but there is a strange, almost soapy aftertaste that overpowers everything else. I don't know what I'm going to do with the other 5 pouches--they will probably go to a food bank.

    I give it 2 stars, rather than 1, only because of ease of preparation. ...more info
  • Dreadful; high fat; just plain weird
    Comes out of the package in a gelatinous slab that must be broken up and heated. Apparently it was radiated or in other ways sterilized. It is approximately 15 grams of fat per serving and tastes oily and unpleasant. It is cheap for a reason. Mine is now in the trash. Save your money and perhaps your health....more info
  • Can't buy when you don't know what you're buying.
    Same problem for me.....ALL food items should have nutritional information available. Surprised how many items on Amazon do NOT provide that.

  • Tasty!
    This is a very good product and comes very close to "fresh from the kitchen" but breaking the clumps/adding the water to get the right consistency isn't as easy as one would think....more info
  • Good!
    I really liked the flavor of this, and I also love the fact that it's so easy to prepare . . . just pop it in the microwave. It has a nice taste and it seems to have healthy, "real" ingredients. I will buy this again....more info
  • What are the ingredients?
    Please list the ingredients of products such as this, so that those of us with food allergies can purchase wisely. What kind of oil is used? Is there dairy in the product? I would love to try this product, but must know what is in it before I make a purchase of six boxes. Therefore, I am unqualified to rate the product since I have not tried it.
    Many thanks!...more info
