Can you freeze rice after it is cooked?.......

I plan on buying a load of rice to last me the whole week. I'll prob cook it all up on a sunday. Should I freeze it and then reheat it when I'm ready to eat of just store it in the fridge ready to be reheated? (will it stay fresh like this?)

Thanks

    This has been covered in detail, about a week or sao back. Lots of people gave good advice on the subject. Do a search for it mate.

    Yeah, rice really *shouldn't* be reheated. But then again, I've eaten reheated rice hundreds of times and I'm still alive.

    Yes, I'm sure that's true for a very large number of people tbh. But still.. just to let one know the threat is present...


    I always thought rice was rather cheap.. so if a little is extra then I don't see the point in keeping it. More often than not it tastes crap when you have to store it and then prepare it to eat a second/third/fourth time. I suppose it depends on the storing and 'repreparing' methods used..

    If you want it fresh then have it fresh IMO.

    It also doesn't take that long to make.. if you have a cooker you can just set it and forget it until it's ready..

    rice has a huge surface area do to the many grains, just dont leave it out for long after cooking it, if you want to freeze it wash it straight away in cold running water, dry as best you can with some kitchen towel transfer it to a lidded container and put in the freezer immediately.

    As long as you thoroughly reheat the rice afterwards you should be fine.

    Supermarkets sell frozen cooked rice so I dont see why it cant be done at home.

    we run and we run to catch up with the sun but its sinking

    Theres no problem freezing rice, but it can only be reheated once make sure you add a bit of water when you reheat it and cling film over. i have done it thousands of time with pasta and rice and never had problems and i serve about 80 ppl a day. there is no need to dry it though just drain asusal.

    come on just 1 more rep
