  • No need of adding mint leaves. If you want u can add.
  • Check the water ratio. If u cook in electric rice cooker add 1:1.5 ratio. In cooker 1:1 is enough,because rice is already soaked for 20min. 
  • I cooked in pressure cooker for 20 min in simmer. Add 1:1.5 water ratio. While opening i found some excess water on top. But wen i mixed all water absorbed and it was perfect veg brinji. So u can try with 1:1 ratio or 1:1.5 ratio of water level.
