Baked Samosa Pinwheels Recipe
These Pinwheels are perfect to serve with a hot cup of masala chai.
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 the each pinwheel is bite size and hence the name. Samosa Pinwheels are a rich party appetizer and snack too! Also to make it healthier, I'm using baking method to make these pinwheels.

In another mixing bowl, add all the ingredients of stuffing and mix it well. Keep aside. After 10 minutes, take out the dough and knead it for couple of minutes.
Make 2 equal sized portions out of the dough. Dust one portion of dough in flour and roll it to slightly thicker chapati using rolling pin. Cut the edges of circle to make a pastry sheet.
Make 2 portions of the filling also. Take one portion of filling and spread it nicely in the rolled pastry sheet. Now roll the pastry sheet with the filling and cut it into pieces.
Take each chopped samosa pinwheels and press the open side gently to make it like a round shape so that the inner filling looks like a pinwheel. Now, rub the pinwheels into sesame seeds and keep them aside.
