This question already has an answer here:
My wife and I like Asian meals (Curry, Niku Jaga, et cetera) and without fail we tend to make more rice than we need.
I would encourage her to cook less rice, but a preferable solution would be to use the rice with the meal - since we tend to have leftovers anyway, and it would be more convenient to cook the amount of rice needed to go with the meal and leftovers.
However, rice in the microwave always comes out either soggy, grainy, or both at once. This is hardly appetizing, and I suspect the reason for it is an improper method of storing leftover rice.
Normally we simply put the rice in a plastic Tupperware container in our refrigerator and then microwave it when we want to use it. Is there a better way to store or cook our leftover rice so that we don't wind up with soggy, unappetizing rice leftovers?
