Show me for cigars

Ingredients
9 samosa pattis
2 tbsp plain flour (maida) dissolved in 3 tbsp water
oil for deep-frying

To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing
1 1/2 cups blanched and finely chopped spinach (palak)
1/2 cup grated mozzrella cheese
salt and to taste
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies

To Be Mixed Into A Honey Chilli Sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp dry red chilli flakes (paprika)
2 tbsp water
1 tsp sugar (optional)
Method
  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 towards the opposite pointed edge and stick the edges with a little flour paste to form a cylindrical shape.
  4. Seal the edge of the samosa patti using a little of the flour paste.
  5. Repeat with the remaining pattis and filling to make more cigars.
  6. Heat a broad non-stick pan or kadhai with oil and deep-fry a few cigars at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  7. Serve immediately with honey chilli sauce.

Handy tip:

  1. Squeeze out all the water from the blanched and chopped spinach to prevent the cigars from becoming soggy.

The combo of spinach along with cheese is always super but when filled inside a samosa patti it is just so crispy and crunchy. The honey chilli sauce served with it is just so good, they are a little time consuming to make but they are worth every effort made to make these.
