Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, roughly chop cilantro. Cut cucumbers into 1/4-inch rounds. Combine mayo and sriracha in a small bowl. Set aside.
Add rice to the boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
