Cooked a thai curry on Monday night, and put half in a bowl with rice in the fridge with cling-film on top. Normally I'd eat it within 24 hours but ended up going out last night instead. Would you still eat it 36+ hours later?

No but I would feed it to my husband!

From the Food Standards Agency...
It's best to serve rice when it has just been cooked. If that isn't possible, cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) and keep it in the fridge for no more than one day until reheating.

So, on that advice, probably not.

shame. I was hoping for the usual man-up and eat it...

I did a food hygiene exam a few years ago at school, and they said within 24 hours but didn't know whether that was real or not.

Yes because the chilli is a natural antiseptic and will keep it safe.

I'd eat it if it wasn't thai food. Only concern would be the rice.

In future I'd bin the rice and keep the rest, as above it's probably the rice hat will kill you!

Why can't you eat it? You've eaten worse in restaurants! :)

Reheat until its REALLY hot ... man up and eat it. It'll be fine.

It's a myth that rice can't be reheated - as long as it is piping hot it's fine.

Rice is one of the biggest causes of food poisoning iirc. Chuck it out
#19

I've heard that reheating rice can cause food poisoning. Is this true?
It's true that you could get food poisoning from eating reheated rice. But it's not actually the reheating that's the problem – it's the way the rice has been stored before reheating.

Uncooked rice can contain spores of Bacillus cereus, bacteria that can cause food poisoning. When the rice is cooked, the spores can survive. Then, if the rice is left standing at room temperature, the spores will germinate into bacteria. These bacteria will multiply and may produce toxins (poisons) that cause vomiting or diarrhoea. Reheating the rice won't get rid of these toxins.

So, the longer cooked rice is left at room temperature, the more likely it is that bacteria, or the toxins they produce, could stop the rice being safe to eat.

It's best to serve rice when it has just been cooked. If that isn't possible, cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) and keep it in the fridge for no more than one day until reheating.

Remember that when you reheat any food, you should always check that it's steaming hot all the way through, and avoid reheating more than once.

You reckon restaurants always cook food to order - they cook in days in advance normally.

I eat food up to 5 days after I've made it.

A lot of food going to waste according to some of the dumb comments on here.

Correct - it has nothing to do with reheating and everything to do with how the cooked rice cooled down

Why did you agree with him then quote the same article he already posted?

If you read the advice properly, it's not really the whole cooking/cooling/reheating process - this is only relevant if the rice is contaminated with b.cereus in the first place.

You are correct however in stating the importance of cooling it down quickly.

LOL - didnt notoce goonies quote

So how is one to know if Bacillus cereus is present - put your rice under a microscope?

mind you, lost count of the number of times I have had my leftover curry in the morning which I'd left out all night oO

I know what you're saying, but it's been shown that it isn't as prevalent these days, as say perhaps 10 years ago.

I feed my toddler rice that's been in the fridge for a couple of days. Given my background, I'd be daft to do so without understanding the risk - i.e. negligible

Of course it's still ok, just eat it, too many people panic over food.

Yep,i panic and i'm not bothered, i don't like eating leftovers,my sisters dog loves me X)
