Rice was introduced to Guatemala by the Spaniards, who learned of it when the Moors planted it in Andalusia in the eighth century. The technique of lightly browning the rice probably originated in Asia.

Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add rice and sauté, stirring constantly, over medium heat until golden, about 1 minute. Add the onion, garlic, and carrot and sauté until vegetables are soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato, broth, and 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. If rice is still too firm, add 1 to 2 tablespoons water, cover, and steam until tender, about 2 minutes.
