Ideas for how to use leftover basmati rice?

ViolentScarlet | Nov 10, 2010 12:15 PM

I have a bunch of basmati rice left over from Indian takeout last night - don't want to throw it away, any fairly simple ideas [not more than an hour's work] for what to do with it? I usually make fried rice with leftover Chinese rice but I'm not sure that soy sauce and basmati would go together? Ideally would like to be able to use it with ingredients I already have [some frozen veggies, potatoes, a few fresh veggies, canned black beans, some cheeses, broth, ground turkey, your standard stuff] and I don't really like rice in salad. I already did a search on this board but didn't come up with much. Any help much appreciated - thanks!
