Pour the water (see ingredients for amount) into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. When boiling, stir in the rice and a pinch of salt, lower the heat to medium and pop a lid on the pan. Cook for 10 mins, then remove from the heat and set aside (still covered) for another 10 mins or until ready to serve. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam.
