About this recipe: This is the recipe for my grandma's rice and being Mexican, this is about as authentic as you can get. Makes a great side dish for barbecued meat or vegetables. Sometimes I add corn or any other spare vegetables I have to this as well.

  • 375g long grain rice
  • 250g Italian tomato pasta sauce or tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 1/2 cups water
