How Much Rice For 15 People?

It’s that time of year again when your family is coming over for the holidays and you have no idea how much food to prepare.

Do not worry, we are here to help! In this blog post, we will give you a guide on how much rice to cook for 15 people.

How Much Rice For 15 People?

In the case of rice, the standard is approximately 1 Cup (90g) for each person though some prefer using less , around 1/3 of a cup (60g) for each person. Remember, we’re talking about rice that isn’t cooked here so when cooked, it’s typically approximately a cup for each person, since rice doubles in size.

For 15 people, we recommend using between 15 and 20 cups (1350g – 1800g) of rice.

This should be more than enough to ensure that everyone has plenty to eat and there are leftovers for seconds or even taking some home with you. If you’re cooking for a large group, it’s always better to have too much food than not enough.

How much rice is enough for 20 persons?

For 20 people to be fed five cups of uncooked rice (about 2.2 pounds) can be cooked. After it is cooked, you’ll receive the equivalent of 25 cups rice, which could provide 20 people, based on the unique aspects.

It’s going to be two and a half cups per person.

This is only a guide because different people have unique eating habits. If you have big eaters in your group, you might want to consider making more rice. The good news is that rice is cheap and easy to make, so it won’t break the bank if you need to make a little extra.

Now that you know how much rice to cook for 20 people, get cooking! And enjoy your delicious meal with friends and family.

How many servings does 2 cups of rice make?

A one (1) cup of raw rice will yield 3 1/2 cups of cooked rice, which is enough for three light eaters. To make sure that you’ve got enough rice make 1 1/2 cups of raw rice for three or four people and 2 cups of rice cooked for 4 to 6 persons.

A two (or more) cup serving of cooked rice will give you leftovers, which is fine if you like to have rice on hand for quick meals during the week. Simply store your cooked rice in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat as needed. Leftover cooked rice can also be frozen for up to six months.

If you’re cooking for a large group, make a double batch of rice so that you’ll have plenty to go around. When making a big batch of rice, cook it in a larger pot than usual so that the grains have enough room to move around and prevent them from sticking together.

How much rice do I need for 8 adults?

One cup of uncooked rice ( round grain, long grain Brown rice, long grain, etc. ) weighs about 175-180 grams. To provide for 8 people you’ll need around 3.5 cups of uncooked or raw uncooked rice.

This will give you enough rice to make a generous serving for each person with some left over.

Now, let’s say you want to be very generous and have lots of leftovers OR you’re having a party where people might want seconds. In this case, I would recommend making closer to   five cups of uncooked rice. This will give you about six or seven cups of cooked rice which is plenty for eight people with some extra.

If you’re using parboiled or white rice, the general rule is that one cup of dry uncooked rice will yield about two cups of cooked rice.

How much rice do you need per person?

This is a question that I get asked a lot, and it really depends on how much rice you want to eat. For one person, I would recommend at least one cup of rice. However, if you are cooking for a family or large group, you will need more rice. A good rule of thumb is to cook one cup of rice per person plus one extra cup. So, if you are cooking for three people, you will need four cups of rice.

Another factor to consider is what else you are serving with the rice. If you are serving a lot of other food, you will need less rice per person. However, if you are serving a light meal or want to have leftovers, you will need more rice.

Finally, it is important to know how much water to use when cooking rice. For one cup of rice, you will need two cups of water. So, if you are cooking four cups of rice, you will need eight cups of water.

What is the serving size of white rice?

Half CupWhat do you think is the recommended serving of Success Rice

That’s what most people think. But according to the back of the package, the recommended serving size is actually only half a cup.

Now, you might be thinking that half a cup is not very much rice. And you would be right. It’s not very much rice. In fact, it’s barely enough to fill up a small bowl.

So why is the recommended serving size only half a cup? Well, there are two reasons.

The first reason is that white rice is very calorie dense. A single cup of white rice contains about 200 calories. That means that if you eat two cups of white rice, you’re consuming 400 calories.

How much rice do I need for 6 adults?

Rice amount to cook

It can be tricky to figure out. It all depends on how much rice you want each person to have, and how many people you’re cooking for. Here is a guide to help you cook the perfect amount of rice every time.

If you’re cooking for six adults and want each person to have one cup of cooked rice, then you’ll need to start with three cups of uncooked rice. This will give you six cups of cooked rice in total, which is enough for six people.

If you want to make more or less rice, simply adjust the amount of uncooked rice accordingly.

Is 1 cup rice enough for 2?

Take one cup of white long grain rice into a cup , then smooth it out. One cup of rice that is dry will cook enough rice to make up to 3 adult meals. (Or two adults and two children.) The best part with this dish is that that it is proportional.

So if you have one cup of rice, and two cups of water, it will cook. And if you have two cups of rice and four cups of water ,it will also cook. All you need is a little bit of salt to season it while cooking.

But what happens if you only have one cup of rice and two people to feed? Is one cup rice enough for two people?

The answer is: maybe. It all depends on how much other food you’re serving with the rice, and how hungry your guests are. One cup of dry white long grain rice usually cooks up into about three cups of cooked rice, which is enough for three smallish servings or two larger ones.

How many cups of rice does 2 cups of instant rice make?

This is a common question that people have when they are trying to figure out how much rice to cook. The answer is that two cups of instant rice will make four cups of cooked rice. This is because the water that is used to cook the rice expands when it is heated and this causes the volume of the rice to increase.

Some people like to add more water than what is called for on the package of instant rice. This will make the finished product more moist and tender. If you are going to add more water, you should start by adding one-fourth cup of additional water for each cup of dry instant rice.

How much water do I need for 2 cups of rice?

The most basic white rice-to-water ratio is 2 cups of water per cup rice. You can easily increase or even triple the recipe. Just ensure that you use the right size pot to hold the rice while the rice cooks, as it cooks and expands.

If you’re making more than that, figure on ½ cup water per cup of dry rice. So, for example, if you want to make 12 cups of cooked rice, use six cups of water and three cups of dry rice. That’ll give you the basic ratio. Again, increase or decrease as desired.

Keep in mind that some varieties of rice absorb water better than others. Basmati and jasmine rice, for instance, tend to need less water overall. Conversely, brown rice typically needs a little more H20 while cooking.

Check package instructions for details if you have them. If not? No worries! The general rule is still a good place to start no matter what type of rice you’re using.


So, how much rice do you need for 15 people? Well, if each person eats 1/2 cup of cooked white rice, then you will need at least 7 cups of raw white rice to feed everyone. Of course, this is a very rough estimate and doesn’t take into account any leftovers or variations in portion size. But it should give you a good starting point for planning your next big gathering!
