I am not sure why you soaked it to start with..there is no need and now you just wasted the rice. Soaked rice will ferment and spoil.

I know you won't answer but, why did you soak rice at all? I'm no expert when it comes to food safety after doing something odd to food but I wouldn't cook ot now, I'd throw it out.

Your soaked rice should be thrown out to prevent food poisoning. Because soaking rice in water at room temperature enables bacteria to grow in there. And uncooked rice can contain spores of Bacillus cereus, a bacterium that can cause food poisoning. http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/can-reheating-rice-cause-food-poisoning.aspx?CategoryID=51 A proper way to cook rice is to mix equal volumes (1 cup for example) of rice and water, and cook it until the rice absorbs all the water. An automatic rice-cooker does this best, without burning the rice. If you try to do this manually in a pot, then you'll probably end up with some burned rice at the bottom of your pot.
