Notes To Converting Rice Cups To KilogGrams

As you can see, all types of rice vary roughly between 0.2 and 0.21 kilograms per cup. Somewhere we rounded the values as even when you measure the same type of rice in the same setting you can get different results by 1-5 grams.

Furthermore, when using rice, it is not that important to have exact quantities. You won’t really notice any difference if using 0.2 or 0.21 kilograms of rice, no matter what type.

So simply using 0.2 kg as the weight of one cup for long grain rice and 0.21 kg for smaller grain rice will do the job.

We used regular US cups (240 ml) to determine how much is 1 cup of rice in kilograms.
