  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the rice, bay leaves, and water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once the mixture starts boiling, lower the heat to low and cover the saucepan. Let it simmer for 18 minutes.
  2. After the simmering time, remove the lid from the saucepan and fluff the rice using a fork. Cover it again and let it rest for 10 minutes to absorb any remaining steam.
  3. Take out the bay leaves from the saucepan and add the lime juice, lemon juice, salt, and cilantro. Stir everything together to ensure they are well combined.
  4. Now your rice is ready! Serve and enjoy!
