How to Fluff the Life Back into Leftover Rice

You can make old rice fluffy again!

Rice is a pantry staple for Filipinos—there is no better starch component to go along with your tasty viands of adobo, kare-kare, and sinigang! Most households often end up with leftover rice. While you can always re-use these leftovers for sinangag (fried rice) or for casseroles, there are also a few ways to make day-old, dried-out rice fluffy again.

 

On the stovetop:

 

Combine 2 tablespoons of water for every cup of rice in a saucepan. Break up the rice with a fork, cover the saucepan, and cook the rice and water over low heat for at least 5 to 7 minutes. Remember to stir the rice occasionally.
