Samosa Pinwheels or Samosa bites are bite-size quick alternate option to one of the most popular Indian snack- Samosas. Making perfect Samosas could be little tricky and tedious, but these Samosa pinwheels are very easy and they taste as scrumptious as a perfect Samosa would.
I have also posted tortilla Samosa recipe which is another quick version of making Samosas. Do check it out as well.
Now let me tell you few important things to remember to prepare Samosa Pinwheels. First of all, use only white or yellow potatoes for this recipe. These potatoes have very good binding ability so they do not come out while frying in hot oil. Another important thing to remember is that dough should not be rolled very thick or thin. It should be just a little thicker than chapatti.
For frying Samosa Pinwheels, we should first keep oil on medium low flame. Once they become little pinkish in color we should increase the heat to medium high until they are golden brown.
