Baked Samosa Pinwheel

I watched Manjula’s youtube video on Samosa Pinwheel. It caught my attention immediately. But, I put off the idea of trying the dish in my kitchen as the last step was to “FRY” in oil. I have been struggling to keep off those extra kilos that are gaining on me. So, deep fried snacks were not welcome. Somehow, this pinwheel concept of samosa was luring. I wanted to try it. Then, while browsing I saw a recipe for baked samosa. I was excited. I combined the idea of baking with Manjula’s pinwheel and lo! I had my baked samosa pinwheels.

Refrigerate the dough for 10 mins, then make a big chapati out of the dough. Let the chapati not be very thin. Spread the potato mixture evenly over the chapati. Grease the rolling pin and lighly roll over the potato mixture.

Pre-heat the oven at 200 Celsius. Now, roll the chapati tightly. Secure the sides by closing it. Roll it several times. Slice them with a width of about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch.

For each slice, place them on the platform with flat side down and lightly roll it using the greased rolling pin. Place them on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet. Keep them in the oven for 15-20 mins (time completely depends on your oven). After about 10 mins, turn them over and continue baking.
