24 Hr - ORP (Curry & Rice)

#1
Simple.

I want to buy a few packs of the Boil in Bag curry and rice. If needs must i will fork out and buy whatever menu they are but they're nice, I've got 5 days worth of Civi camping coming up and I want my new favourite Rat Pack meal!

Checked with the stores before you ask and with a TA unit down the road! Ebay isn't showing much either. Are they made by a firm that has put them on the ope market?

Cheers.

They seem to do all sorts, but I can't vouch for their service.

You are braver than me if you want to eat a Rat Pack Curry...<shudder>
Are you kidding? Rat pack curries are awesome. The tastiest thing ever to come out of those little boxes. :D

Bad_Crow you are a glutton for punishment, 8O literally! I'm afraid sausage and beans is the only one I could eat more than twice in a row if I could choose. :wink:

Is there anywhere you can still get the old tinned version packs

I think the quality of ORPs has gone down significantly. The last rat pack curry I had, was bland and stringy, and the rice simply would not soften enough to eat it even if you boiled it for 20 minutes. The chocolate tasted like that foreign fake chocolate, and biscuits brown are like eating fibreboard.

I think the contractor has changed, they now have orange labels stuck on the retort bags instead of printing on the bag like they used to.

Tescos have some rather nice boil in the bag curries in there Ethnic/World Foods section, that are actually manufactured in India (Not Vesta shoite) so why not give them a go. boil in the bag rice is quite exotic now, and you can even get mini nans that will warm up in fry pan etc;

Some of the MREs are quite good. I have fond memories of chillies and Thai pork curries (but some menus should be flushed straight down the karzi) You could also try them. Available from quite a few surplus suppliers in the UK.

I've bought compo sausages from Westlers by phoning the company. I think they were £10 per case of 12. Don't ask for compo sausages ask for 'Sausages in Lard' If you have any problems ask to speak to the managing director Charlie Breese.
I would also be interested to get the old tinned ones.

Yup, the tesco's indian stuff is good. Its in a cardboard box if looking for it but inside is the familiar boil in bag shiny metal thing. No meat IIRC, just veggie curries but good.

That is a sentence I never thought I would hear! Nobody liked them because of the taste, they like them for more nefarious reasons....

Tell me if you manage to find Bacon Grill mate.
Bacon grill can be found in Lidle's.

Asda and most of the big asian supermarkets sell a fair range of boil in the bag curries and rice dishes. Theres also some made in India prawn curries that I havent plucked up the courage to buy

i was unfortunate enough to have to eat lamb curry and basmati rice last week, it was stinking, the rice was rock hard after cooking and as for if it was lamb or not is anyones guess, who the fcuk actually sanctioned it as being good enough is either on someones pay roll or needs a good kick up the aarse, steer well clear pal!

I don't know why you would want to carry all that rubbish - there are dehydrated meals out there far better suited to carrying than rat packs. If not mobile then again, far better 'normal' foods out there.

Or are you going to be walting it on a camp site in DPM?
