Wash the rice well, bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. When it starts to boil add the rice, a little salt, mix well and let simmer until the rice soaks up all the water and is done.
Here the ratio is 1 to 2 rice to water. I had round grain rice.
Let cool properly after boiling.
If you have left over rice from some other meal or garnish, it's even more convenient to reuse it here.
