Living in Louisiana we eat a lot of rice. Since it's just the two of us now I've learned to freeze the cooked rice. After it's cooked and cooled I put in in a large ziplock freezer bag and flatten it out. When you need just one or two servings of rice just break off the amount needed. Having it flattened makes it easy to break. Put it on your plate cover with gravy and nuke. Rice flattened and frozen will last forever.

Dear Verue, Thanks for the reassuring a-o.k. on freezing rice. I'll follow your advice by zip-locking and flattening it out before I store it in the freezer. I had cooked way to much basmati rice for a guest dinner gathering and didn't want to waste one single grain and/or "push" it as a left-over for more than one day! I bet your Louisiana rice recipes are a real treasure for your family and guests to enjoy! Go Saints Go!
