How to Make Pinwheel Samosa

Samosa pinwheels are a great party treat. This is an interesting twist on the popular Pakistani snack samosas. They make a mouthwatering appetizer or can be served as a chaat. There are several names to this unique samosa recipe and one such popular name is samosa rolls. Unlike the traditional samosa’s, the samosa roll is rolled with potato stuffing which is later sliced to individual pinwheels.

These individual pinwheels would have exposure to potato stuffing and are deep-fried till crisp. These beautifully cooked pinwheels certainly look fascinating and prettier on the dinner table, and your guests will be super tempted to try a few. But no one can stop at one as they are very addictive and your guests will come back for seconds.
