Recipe Yield: Total time: 45 minutes | Serves 4
2 Roma tomatoes, peeled 1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth 1 cup long-grain rice 2 tablespoons oil Generous pinch of cumin seeds 1 large clove garlic, mashed with 1/2 teaspoon salt to form a paste. 1/2 cup very finely chopped onion (about 1/3 onion)

Step 1 Rinse the rice well, then drain and spread it out on a platter to dry.

Step 2 Place the tomatoes in a blender and blend until pureed, adding a little broth or water if needed. Pour into a 2-cup measuring cup and add enough broth or water to measure 2 cups. Set aside.

Step 3Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the rice and cumin seeds and fry until the rice begins to brown. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 4Add the tomato liquid and 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, placing the pot on a heat diffuser if necessary to prevent burning and sticking, about 28 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
