    Special Ed's Note:

    This is an adaptation from Diana Kennedy's "Recipes from the Regional Cooks of Mexico". I modified it a little, adding some chili powder and cumin, and changing some of the preparation (primarily, cooking the rice before frying, rather than soaking only)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cover the rice in water and cook until done. (I use a rice cooker).
    2. 2
      Strain the rice, if necessary, in a colander/strainer until no excess water (don't want to put water in hot oil!).
    3. 3
      Heat oil in a deep pan (I used my dutch oven) until very hot (near smoking).
    4. 4
      Add rice to oil and still constantly, until rice is starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Be sure heat is high, or rice will get mushy.
    5. 5
      Add cumin and chili powder and mix thoroughly.
    6. 6
      Puree the tomato, garlic and onions until smooth, and add to the rice mixture.
    7. 7
      Add the broth and let cook over medium heat until holes appear in the rice. stir the broth in initially, then do not stir until the holes appear.
    8. 8
      Add the carrots and peas, mix to combine, and place in a covered dish to finish absorbing everything, at least 15 minutes.
