Early in the morning put the rice in hot water for to wash it and let stand
2 hours. Then pour off the water and let rice dry; it can take an hour or
try to dry it with a kitchen fabric. Fry the rice in a big amount of
vegetable oil (you will retire all of it do not worried about fat) when the
rice sounds like sand (*lightly browned); drain off all of the vegetable
oil, you can use a sauce spoon. When the rice is without oil, add the red
tomato puree and let it season 5 minutes, stir and stir, then add 4 cups of
boiling water, salt and pepper and the vegetables, cover and let cook in
the most little flame you can get until is done without water, it can take
