The Veg Samosa Pinwheel is an attempt to repackage the ever-popular samosa in a new form, which is handy and delightful, ideal to serve as a starter at parties .
A filling of potatoes and green peas, perked up with spice powders, just like the samosa filling, is applied on a plain flour chapati, rolled up like a Swiss roll and sliced.
These dainty pinwheels are then deep-fried to get an attractive snack, which looks and tastes great. It tastes pretty much like a samosa but has an attractive form that reveals the contents, thereby making the diners all the more eager to grab a bite! Serve this with ketchup and green chutney.
