I've always read that cooked rice eaten next day is potentially lethal. However.... many years of experience tells me that out of the fridge and dumped into a very hot frying pan with onions, followed a few minutes later with a few odd veggies lying around and finished off with a good glug of soy sauce makes an excellent fried rice that so far [touch wood] hasn't killed me off.
Exactly! You have to heat the living daylights out of rice. I always microwave the hell out of it. Remember my food hygiene tutor drumming it into us that we should never, ever, ever eat rice that's been kept warm under a heat lamp like you see at some buffet places in the UK.

So in short, when I cook the rice to make fried rice the day before it's not really a good idea.
Then again, I never had a problem so I seem to be pretty resistant. But it's not a good idea when I have guests.
no it's fine, you should just cool it down quickly and keep it refrigerated until you fry it.

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

And from the NHS
"Yes, you can get food poisoning from eating reheated rice. However, it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but the way the rice has been stored before it is reheated."

More details here

Having said that I have survived eating many reheated Indian and Chinese takeaway leftovers.

As we are anyway off noodle topic I always cook rice in a simple way in a covered non stick frying pan; 1 cup of rice, two and half cups of water and cook on high heat until all the water is gone.

Yeah, it was all interesting info but fact is I never had a problem - and the max. risk is a 24h problem - so I'm just gonna carry on the way I did.

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

Never had a problem with leftover rice. Another great tip: rice freezes great. Just portion it up in microwaveable containers, then nuke it at full power for 3 minutes and the rice is steamy and fluffy, as if you just made it fresh.

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

my hubby tells me frequently that i might die if i reheat rice. I find that although i almost never use a microwave, i do use it try to nuke the hell out of rice i am reheating, and then finish it off by throwing it in the stir fry - this really means that the temp of the rice is scorchio whilst not knocking out all of the goodness of the veg in the stir fry...

Okay, I did.
Are you guys saying, if you have left-over rice you throw it away?
We've never had problems, often leaving leftover cooked rice out (covered) overnight before refrigerating, often reheating, adding to news cooked rice and re-chilling leftovers again, or freezing them.

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

I'm with Curley on this one. I cook the rice, spread it on a sheet pan, and let it sit out for 24 hours at room temp before making fried rice with it. Sometimes i'll leave it for 2 or even 3 days. Ive never gotten sick..

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

millions (billions?) of people in Asia eat rice at least 10 times a week for most of the lives, I've never heard of such a problem

Re: Fried noodles epiphany

The food poisoning will arrive if the original raw rice was infected with bacillus cereus. I read this happens in the warehouses.
I also have never been ill, maybe because I buy rice from supermarkets, not from Asian shops.

The bacteria is not killed by boiling, so infected rice should be eaten immediately, before the bacteria has time to create the toxins, which make us ill. I don' think refrigerating rice will stop the toxins being produced, the best defence is to buy bacterium free rice, and I believe our supermarkets only buy from clean sources.

Touching faith in supermarkets. It is thought that bacillus cereus is present in pretty well all rice.

Then you've been lucky so far. But a stupid argument for not changing your habits. Bit like a smoker saying that smoking hasn't killed him yet therefore he has no reason to quit.

Well, it hasn't, and we almost always leave food out overnight, including rice.
