Samosa Pinwheels


  This recipe has been viewed 3604 times

Samosa is a fried or baked dish with a savoury filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas or minced meat. But here to make it Jain, I am using raw bananas instead of potatoes.

Samosa Pinwheels is a slight alternation to the traditional Samosa and is as delicious as the traditional samosas and yet they are quite easy than the samosa as the outer cover making is not hard as samosas.

The stuffing looks like pinwheel and also each pinwheel is bite size and hence the name. Samosa Pinwheels are a rich party appetizer and snack too!
