Do you guys realize that SG’s 7-Eleven has finally up its game with its pre-packed food on the shelves?
It used to sell pre-packed food but nobody actually pretty much take a good look about it because it was either NOT NICE or too expensive… BUT NOW, everyone seems to be raving over their Butter Chicken Briyani and because it sounded so good, I decided to give it a shot too!
(FIRST up, sorry guys, great apologies for the disgusting look on the photo, I accidentally kind of spill the gravy while carrying it on the way home as I did not had microwave at home so I heated up in the 7-Eleven and hence there was some holes between the plastic cover which I did not realize. 😦 )
Appearance wise, the rice definitely look fluffy and soft, definitely exceeded my expectations of hard and dry rice which are pretty much how pre-packed rice would be like. Unlike what’s is photographed on the cover, it does not have any onions, just butter briyani on one side and the other, the long grain rice.
The gravy was good in consistency, pretty thick as I was expecting it to be really runny. Hahaha. There’s plenty of chicken chunks in it, they were cooked till really soft and tender, probably like how simmered chicken meat taste like. The meat still holds well together, without falling apart with a bite but I wish it could have been more chewy though. Of course, the gravy and the rice just goes simply so well together and I even cut some cucumber cubes to go along with it.
Yes, you should totally give it a try!! Skip those unhealthy instant noodles, this is totally worth the hype for just $3.90 probably a 10cent cheaper than your regular zi-char takeaway. 😀
