Cilantro Lime Rice from Closet Cooking

We have been trying some of the good looking recipes from some of the sites wife and I visit. This one caught our eye as we don't know what we did before we discovered cilantro
This is from Closet Cooking.... link to the right and boy has he kicked up his recipes.We are wondering it he is not a chef in disguise.

1 tablesboon oil
1/2 onion chooped
1 clove garlic chopped
1 cup rice
2 cups water
cilantro chopped about 1/4 cup
1 lime juice and some zest

heat oil and add onion and saute until tender or clear
add garlic simer about 1 minute
add rice and toast in oil for a few minutes (this was a new way for us to cook rice but we have seen it done this way on cooking shows)
Add water bring to boil reduce and simmer covered for 20 minutes,
Remove from heat and add cilantro and lime jiuice and zest.
Now this was a little bit sticky not the light and fluffy rice we are used to.but it was good.
