President’s Choice is a local grocery brand in Canada – and they seems to be a lot more adventurous than most brands here – they bring you Asian food as well – and they are actually not bad. And like I said always – if you cannot get the real thing here – you settle for the next best thing. I haven’t had Chicken Biryani for a long, long time – maybe 5 yrs? or more – i really can’t remember – and since it was on sale one Sunday – during our grocery shopping day – I bought a frozen pack @$2.99 – how can you go wrong right?
So this is how it looked like when you first take it outta the box – FROZEN!
A little peek at it – to open up the plastic top – and nuke it for 6 minutes. As you can see there is some chicken in there and the biryani doesn’t looked too bad eh.
After taking it out of the microwave – this is how it looks like. Not too bad still – for $2.99.
A bit of raisin as you can see – and some almond flakes? maybe ? so how did it taste? pretty good – very rich – lots of curry – not so much biryani taste – but definitely curry. Very little meat as you can see – but filling for sure. But rich!! really rich !! about 500 calories in this box of chicken biryani – so one cannot eat this too often either. And for those who needs their vegies and meat – I don’t think this would satisfy them either. But it wasn’t a bad deal at all – just that i wouldn’t risk eating it everyday – for fear of putting on too much weight but once in a blue moon sure – it was not bad.
