Did You Know?
A very good way in which to use left-over rice is to make a rice custard of it.

If no cooked rice is on hand and rice is to be cooked for some other dish, it is not a bad plan to increase the amount slightly and use what remains for rice custard.

The best method of preparing rice for rice custard is to steam it, but boiled rice may also be used.
