I was just wondering how you keep left over rice?
My grandma puts it in a bag and then when she wants to cook it again puts in a bowl and steams it.
I put mine in zip lock bags. If I will be making fried rice I put in the fridge. If I will want regular rice I freeze it, then heat it in the microwave.
I put mine, after it has cooled down in small transparent plastic bags and freeze them to make fried rice. I don’t like eating rice on its own after you freeze them. Fresh rice is always better.
with my left over rice
i put it in a bowl then i put it my fridge
when i want to reheat my rice i put it in my rice cooker and cook it as if it was raw rice
I put mine in a zip bag and refrigerate. Keeps for a few days. I nuke it for a minute to heat it up. I’ve never frozen mine, we eat rice 3 – 4 times a week, so…. Sometimes I boil a cup of water and add it to cold rice and eat with banchans for breakfast. That is often done in Korea.
Are you familiar with Nurunggi? If you cook rice in a pot on the stove you will often get a crispy layer at the bottom of the pot. It is not burned (unless you really did burn it). This is called Nurunggi. It is delicious all by itself, kind of nutty. Koreans waste nothing if possible, so will often put some water over the Nurunggi and boil for a few minutes and have for breakfast. Nurunggi mul (mul is water) is what they call it.
