Do not keep cooked rice, even in the fridge, for more than one day.
NOTE: But before we start, I must impress upon you the importance of not leaving cooked rice at room temperature. Instead, you should put it into the fridge as soon as it has cooled down if you want to keep it until the next day. This will prevent food poisoning, which can happen if the Bacillus cereus bacteria is allowed to grow.
