Place the rice in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the water. Bring the pan to a boil, and then cover it with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover the pan and remove the heat. Fluff the rice grains with a fork, stir in the remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
