Place the rice in a sieve and rinse in cold water until the water runs clear. Drain and shake well.
Combine the rice with all the remaining ingredients in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to the boil, cover with the lid and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and leave to stand, covered and without stirring, for 10 minutes. Fluff up with a fork before serving.
