This is a very flavorful kind of roti, since the mint leaves are dried and added to the whole wheat flour.
Mint leaves reduce muscle ache, relieve bad smells of breath, increases appetite, relieve heartburn, relieve nasal congestion, nausea and indigestion, and,  improve body immunity.
Here are my other mint recipes:
1. Mint thogayal
2. Mint-channa pulav
3. Mint rice
4. Radish-mint parathas

Whole wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Mint leaves - 1 bunch
Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Paratha masala powder - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil + ghee, as required to cook the rotis

Recipe cuisine: North Indian; Category: Breakfast/lunch/dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 20 mts

Yields 5 rotis

Pudina/mint leaves, washed and drained

Microwaved for 2-3 minutes, in the burst of 30 seconds, till the mint leaves become dry and shrunk like this. You can also roast it in slow flames in a non stick kadai,,but that will take longer time

Then, either crush with your hands or pulse it in the blender jar a couple of times. I just crushed with my hands, since it was well roasted and crisp.

Measure and take the wheat flour in a bowl, add salt, chilli powder, jeera, paratha masala powder and ghee. If you don't have paratha masala powder, any other masala, like garam masala  or kitchen king masala can be added too.

Add the crushed mint leaves too

Knead it to a soft dough, allow to rest for 20-30 minutes

Roll out thin rotis, dusting wheat flour

Heat a non stick tava, after dry roasting the roti on both sides

drizzle some oil and ghee mixed

Cook both sides till some golden spots appear.

Keep them aside
