Samosa Pinwheels

Samosa Pinwheels

Samosa Pinwheels is a mouthwatering snack very easy to serve during parties and large gatherings. As evident by the name it is similar to our ever green samosas but easier and quicker to make.

I have made them in an Air Fryer (as shown below) to avoid frying. You can bake them or even fry them. I have shown both the methods. They are delicious anyway.
