Chef's tip

Rice can be cooked before the meal is due to be served, providing it is properly stored and used the same day. Allow the rice to cool and refrigerate until required. Microwave when required, ensuring it is piping hot. Do not reheat rice that is more than 1 day old or rice that may not have been properly stored.
