The curry is made by a company called Wicked Kitchen who have a range of plant-based vegan ready meals made exclusively for Tesco’s. From what I have seen, our local only stocks this and their mushroom lasagne. We are hoping though over time they will get more of the range instore. Although, it seems that being in N.ireland we seem to have drawn the short straw when it comes to the items we get. Which is nothing new.
I’ve tried googling to see what I can find out about Wicked Kitchen but their official website doesn’t seem to work in my region for some reason and there isn’t much, if any, information about them on the Tesco’s website which I find really weird considering their meals are exclusively made for them. What they do have on the website is 10 Easy Vegan Recipes and a section on Helpful little swaps which is in partnership with Jamie Oliver.
Anywho, reading through the ingredients and the nutritional values of the curry the only thing that was slightly worrying was the number of Saturated Fats. 35% for me is quite a lot compared to other ready meals that I have had in the past. Especially for there being so much of the ‘good stuff’ in the ingredients.
Opening the container, just to get a smell of the curry, to me it smelt like something that you would get from a restaurant and not something that you could cook in a microwave. Following the instructions on the sleeve was pretty simple as with any microwavable meal. 3 minutes and 45 seconds and it was done.
When I originally bought this curry I didn’t think that I would like it as much as I did. I’m not a really big fan of chickpeas or spinach or even coconut but they really set the flavour. I’m not sure if I would pay full price for it but if it was on offer I would definitely put it in my basket.
These Opinions are that of my own and no-one else’s. I have not been paid in any way for writing this review.
