Basmati Rice

Hey guys. Just wonderin if I cook some basmati rice, mix it with whatever I need, then refrigerate it untill the next day will it be ok. Some people say its always best to eat it straight away because of bacteria and all.
Id be eatin it cold as I dont have access to a microwave at work?

    Sounds fine to me, yeah there can be bacteria problem with regaurds to rice.
    If you cool it rapidly problems should be minimised, shame you cant reheat it thouth - keep it as cool as possible all day long before eating it.

    If you can, cook it in the morning perhaps? Food poisoning would be horrible

    Yes it is fine. Make sure you keep it cold though, rice kept warm is risky.

    If it cools down, like it would in the fridge I'd say it'd be ok to eat cold. Supermarkets sells cold rice in the lunch section and most salad bars have cold rice so you should be ok, but if you're gonna reheat make sure its piping hot!!

    You find the major problem occurs with take-away rice etc. They cook it and then reheat it once more in a stir fry. You get it home keep the left overs and reheat them later to eat once more. So that's cook - cool - cook - cool - cook - eat. Not a wise move if it isn't piping hot!

    Cook - cool - eat has never hurt me.
