Crunchy Pin Wheel Samosa

Pinwheel samosas are a twist on the typical Indian samosa, with the contents wrapped in a thin layer of pastry dough and curled into a spiral form. After that, they are deep-fried till golden and crispy. They are a popular street meal and are available from numerous street sellers as well as restaurants. Pinwheel samosas are popular for parties, celebrations, and gatherings due to their distinctive shape and presentation. They are available with a range of fillings, ranging from classic savoury fillings like potatoes and spices to more creative fillings like chocolate, cheese, or sweet fillings like fruits or nuts. They may also be cooked with veggie contents, making them a terrific alternative for vegetarians and vegans. They go well with a variety of dipping sauces, including mint chutney, tamarind chutney, and sweet chilli sauce. They’re a tasty and creative take on the conventional samosa, making them a fun and exciting way to savour Indian cuisine.
