This was a nice rice. I burned it a little in the beginning with too high a heat. It probably could have used a bit more liquid, but I didn't think to do that! Also, my mint was last of the season, and there was a funny taste. Not sure if it was because it was burnt, or the mint, but will try to make again. Thanks!
