Boil the kettle. Wash the rice under cold water a few times until the water runs clear. Put the rice into a large saucepan, then add the onion, garlic and thyme
Pour 250ml of just-boiled water over the rice, along with the coconut milk. Cover and cook over a low heat for 20-25 minutes, until tender, topping up with a little water occasionally if needed. Remove and discard the garlic and thyme.
Fold the lime juice and most of the lime zest and herbs through the rice, then scatter over the remaining zest and herbs before serving.
