Instructions
  1. Place water and rice in a tall, medium-sized pot, and bring to the boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until the rice has fluffed up and is almost cooked dry. Remove from heat whilst still a bit wet, so as to prevent sticking.
  3. Pour cold water over rice and strain. You may use a strainer for this, but I usually leave the rice in the pot, add water, and cover with the lid. I then strain it by tilting the pot to it's side, while lifting the lid just a little, to allow water out, but preventing rice from escaping.
  4. Return pot to the stove and turn heat off, or keep the plate at it's lowest heat.
  5. Add chopped coriander, garlic and olive oil to the pot. Fold it into the rice using a fork, being careful not to stir it, and breaking the rice.
  6. Allow to steam for 5-10 minutes, until ready. The rice should be light and fluffy.
