This is such a good way of cooking rice - you end up with lovely light fluffy rice and you can make it slightly in advance.
If I am cooking this rice to serve with a curry, or something like that, I would add some whole spices to the water and serve them on the top of the bowl of rice; For example, a small cinnamon stick and a few whole green cardamon pods.
Fill a large saucepan with water and bring up to the boil.
Add the salt and the rice,stir for a second or two and boil on a high heat for about 4-5mins, or until the rice is nearly cooked (you want to still have a tiny bit of bite, otherwise the rice will stick later) then strain.
Put the rice into a serving dish, stir in the butter if using, cover with tin foil, a plate or a lid, and leave it in a low oven 140c/275f/gas1 for at least 15 mins. (will sit for up to 30 mins like this).
When ready to serve,remove the lid,fluff up the rice and serve.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
