Wash the rice thoroughly, in a colander under running cold water.
Place the rice in a bowl adding enough water to cover the rice by at least 1 inch. Soak for 1/2 to 4 hours. Drain the rice. Discard the soaking water.
In a deep pot, bring the water and salt to a boil over high heat. Add the drained rice, stir briefly to prevent the rice from sticking.
When the water returns to a boil, cover the pot. Turn the heat down to low and cook the rice until the water has been absorbed, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Transfer the rice to a heated platter and serve immediately.
