Crunchy samosa patti rolls, filled with a cheese and spinach mixture. Serve these immediately to enjoy the taste of the melted mozzarella cheese. Ready-made samosa pattis are available at most provision stores. Squeeze out all the water from the blanched and chopped spinach to prevent the cigars from becoming soggy.

8 samosa pattis
2 tbsp plain flour (maida) dissolved in 3 tbsp water

1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp dry red chilli flakes (paprika)

  1. Cut each samosa patti into 3 to get 75 mm. X 62 mm. (3" x 2½") rectangular pieces. You will get 24 pieces in all.
  2. Place a piece of the samosa patti on a flat, dry surface and place a portion of the filling at one pointed edge.
  3. Roll each patti tightly towards the opposite pointed edge and stick the edges with a little flour paste to form a cylindrical shape.

  5. Repeat with the remaining pattis and filling to make more cigars.
  6. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan or kadhai and deep-fry the cigars a few at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  7. Serve immediately with honey chilli sauce.

Minimum ingredients of the filling makes the Spinach Cheese Cigars very appetizing. Crispy, crunchy and delicious! Enjoy the cheesy-spinach flavour in every bite.
