Last night, my faithful rice cooker failed me and turned out a batch of dry rice. I'm wondering what to do with it today to save it. Soup? Fried rice? Some sort of Biryani situation? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks y'all!!

I'd dump it all into a pot with some milk, cream, and sugar, and turn it into rice pudding. The best rice pudding is cooked a couple of hours as you add more liquid to it, so your dry rice should plump up nicely over time. Here are a couple of recipes to get you started:
Some recipes ask you to soak the rice first. I bet with your rice-cookered stuff, you could skip that step.
Try to make risotto. Fry it with olive oil, minced garlic and onion, and add chopped panchetta and sliced mushrooms, add water twice quantity of rice and bouillon cube, add salt & petter, put the lid, leave it until the water dissapear on low heat. Sprincle minced fresh basil if you have, just before serving.

Just put in more water/stock and start the cooking cycle again on the rice cooker.
My favorite use for dry rice is fried rice. Carrots, green onions, cabbage, scrambled egg, and a generous amount of oil and soy sauce...
I just made ochazuke last night because I'm sick with a cold, and it's a great use of old rice (and super easy). I make it with salmon.
I like the idea of making pudding , if you want you can make pudding from latest community picks! Or else if you like corn, then I can suggest you one of my recipes. The milk from corn is enough to dehydrate the rice. I assume the rice is cooked well but is dry.
