FOR MAKING SAMOSA PINWHEEL
8. Mix 3 tablespoons of maida and 1/4 cup of water to make a thin batter. Keep it aside.
9. Take the dough, and knead it once more. Divide it into two equal parts.
10. Grease a wooden board with oil. Place the dough and roll it using a rolling pin to make a circle, slightly thicker than chapati.
11. Take one portion of the filling, and spread it well on the spread chapati, leaving some space around the corners. Press it lightly.
12. Starting from one corner, start rolling the sheet gently, until you have a nice firm log. Apply water at the loose edge and seal well. Roll it gently 4 – 5 times more so that the log is nice and firm.
13. With a sharp knife cut the edges where there is no potato filling. Then cut the remaining portion into 1/2-inch thick pieces. Keep it aside.
14. Take each piece and gently press it. Repeat the same steps with the second dough ball. You can keep these pinwheels in freezer and fry when needed.
15. Heat oil in a pan or kadai over medium-high heat. Put a small piece of dough into the oil. The dough should not rise immediately to the top. It should come up slowly without changing color.
16. Dip the pinwheels into the maida batter, and gently slide the samosa pinwheels into the hot oil and fry them on medium flame in batches until both sides become golden brown turning occasionally.
17. Repeat the steps until all the pinwheels are done.
18. Crisp, delicious, samosa pinwheels can be served with green chutney or simply with tomato ketchup.
