I would absolutely not risk any health issues over it. I'd recommend tossing it out entirely and shopping at a new store. Your current rice supplier obviously has some issues of their own if there are bugs, rodents, etc. getting into their foods. While these moths are indeed mostly harmless, contaminated and infested food should be thrown out. Period. The ...

I haven't had that happen since the 1980's. Sound like the Flour Moth. Freezing Rice or Flour for 3-4 days will kill the eggs. I usually freeze local flour/rice for a few days so that I don't have to deal with any potential problem. If you have pantry moths, or other moths that have hatched, you may need to take extra measures to get rid of them. Once they ...

I would recommend to always marinate the meat with spices and yoghurt for at least 6 - 8 hrs or overnight in in the fridge. This makes the meat tender and juicy plus to avoid burning never put your biryani directly on the flame. What you can do is put a tawa on the stove then sealed biryani pot on it which will surely help. Usually biryani takes 45 – 50 mins ...

We tend to cook 2-3 cups of rice and keep the unused portion in the fridge. But it rarely lasts longer than a couple of days. Although, I'd throw it out if it was a week old. I highly recommend getting a pressure rice cooker. It cooks rice perfectly every time, doesn't make a big mess, and most (if not all) models have a programmable timer so you can set it ...

We keep rice in the fridge for around a week without incident. I generally agree that freezer may be better, but for our use fridge has been fine (and we have limited freezer space!). I haven't had a problem with the rice going bad or making me sick, and I've done this dozens of times over the last year. The key is to add water to the rice when reheating ...

For rice cooking directions, there are many standard rice recipes on the net. Tilda themselves provide a whole chart of cooking times based upon your rice variety at http://www.tilda.com/our-rice/cooking-basmati-rice. I agree with the poster above that if you're a regular rice eater, a rice cooker is the best choice; you'll save time, frustration, and quite ...

If I'm understanding you right (please let me know if I'm not), you're wanting to hold on to rice for a day or two and have it still seem fresh (not all dried out like it gets in the fridge), right? If that's the case, all you need to do is put the rice in a Ziploc baggie (as much as you'll use at one time) and put it in the freezer. The fridge dries out ...

We often do the same thing, saving the rice for another use the next day. Or sometimes I will ask my husband to pick up takeout that I can heat up for lunch the next day. Here's what I recommend. Immediately upon returning home with your takeout, remove the rice from the take out container, placing in an equal size airtight container. E.g., if you have one ...

it is not a good idea to save cooked rice for later use. Raw rice normally contains B. cereus which is not killed at normal cooking temperatures and will continue to germinate in the cooked grain at temperatures over 10C. See: http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/science/science-in-focus/foodborne-illness-pathogens/bacillus-cereus#.VAcyUWBdVYM I'm sure Tilda ...

Rice cooker Rinse the rice once or twice. Jasmine - add a quarter to a third cup more water than rice. Basmati - add half to three quarters more water than rice. When the cooker is done, wait 15 - 20 minutes. Then using a paddle that came with your cooker, gently push the rice from the edge of the cooker bowl, to the centre. The rice should come away ...

Don't put it in the fridge, that makes rice hard. Pack it in individual servings (sandwich or snack sized zipper bags are great for this) and put them in the freezer. When you reheat the rice (microwave or boil in the bag), the rice will be almost as good as freshly made. See: Safe to wash rice the night before and leave overnight before cooking? And: Rice ...
