As always, we’ve included fresh and authentic ingredients throughout, such as Arroz Verde in the Brazilian Coconut Chicken and Toban Jhan paste and fermented soy beans in the Thai Chilli Sticky Pork.
And fret not, Katsu Curry lovers, as our new and exotic dishes will join our existing fan favourites on the shelves: Katsu Chicken Curry, King Prawn, Chicken and Chorizo Paella, Hoisin Duck Noodles, Skinny Thai Coconut Curry, Skinny Teriyaki Chicken and Malaysian Coconut Beef.
Find out more about all of our brand new meals below:
Chicken Miso Ramen
Our Chicken Miso Ramen is based on a traditional Japanese recipe of Hokkaido Miso Broth featuring Udon noodles and Choi sum to add a The City Kitchen twist to this authentic dish.
Vegetable Gyoza & Shiitake Broth
This eat-on-the-go meal is based on a Japanese favourite – gyoza. With a thin pastry and a mixed vegetable filling, this traditional dumpling is matched with a punchy Umami Shiitake broth.
Sweet & Sour Passion Fruit Chicken
From the street food markets of Asia, our Sweet & Sour has traditional ingredients with a The City Kitchen twist! Coated and fried chicken mops up the tangy sauce with the addition of passion fruit for a touch of sweetness.
Thai Chilli Sticky Pork
Inspired by the street food of Camden market, this lunchbox meal combines Thai and Korean recipes for the distinct aromas and flavours that build heat. Tamarind and fish sauce add seasoning without needing additional salt and the dish is topped with crispy onions and cashew nuts as a hand finished touch.
Brazilian Coconut Chicken
Based on a traditional Xinxim Curry with nut paste, coconut milk, chilli and tomato, this curry is a Brazilian staple. Paired with the famous Arroz Verde (green rice) this dish screams all the colours of Carnival! The colourful flame-seared chunks of Butternut squash replicate the Barbacoa (or BBQ!) element of Brazilian cooking.
Paneer Butter Masala
The star of this dish is the flavoursome and indulgent sauce and fried paneer cheese. This option is perfect for vegetarians with flavours of the tandoor oven created by roasting and searing the red peppers and onions in the dish.
You’ll be able to find our new products in the chilled ready meal aisle at Tesco from Monday 21st May 2018.
Soup for dessert? Did you know that in China, the soup is often part of the last course as it is believed to allow for better digestion.
