Back to my love for street food/ similar savoury snacks – I would like to admit that this is pure experiment borne out of the love for taste :), and something which I have named as Baked Pinwheel Snack / Baked Samosa Bites / Samosa Bhakarwadi. The best point of such snacks is that they could be enjoyed in most of the seasons, and without much of a guilt. Now if the season is of winter, then nothing could beat them with a hot cuppa tea/coffee.
The whole experiment started post my Dabeli venture, when I realised that I had some extra potato stuffing remaining in my refrigerator. So I donned my creative hat and used this extra potato stuffing to bake some Bhakarwadi shapes and, hence the name Samosa Bhakarwadi. Feel free to call them Baked Samosa bites as preferred by my husband ! yes, they are healthy in their own right as I have used whole wheat flour and, have baked them instead of frying.
The ingredients for making the Baked Pinwheel Snack / Baked Samosa Bites are :
1. Whole wheat Flour : 1 cup
2. Potato mix (Dabeli stuffing) : 1/2 – 3/4 cup
3. Oil : 1-2 Tbsp
4. Tamarind Chutney : 1-2 Tbsp
5. Salt : to taste
Take the whole wheat flour in a big bowl. Add oil and salt to it. Mix well with your hands. Now knead a firm dough by using required amount of water; cover it and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Roll out this dough into a large circle, neither too thin nor too thick.
Spread the tamarind chutney all over the dough; next spread the potato mix evenly on it (a bit thicker layer than the tamarind chutney). Now start rolling from one end of dough. Roll in firmly and slowly so that the potato mix does not comes out, and you get a cylindrical roll.
Let it rest for 5 minutes. Now carefully cut the roll with knife into 1/2″ inch thick pinwheels (Bhakarwadi shapes).
Preheat the oven on 200°C for 10 minutes.
Grease the baking tray with oil, and place the pinwheels on it. Bake them on 200°C for 30-40 minutes or till they become golden brown in colour.
Take out the baking tray from the oven; let the pinwheels cool down for 2 minutes. Your spicy, savoury mini bites Snacks are ready to be devoured !
Enjoy these spicy, savoury Baked Pinwheel Snack / Samosa Bhakarwadi / Baked Samosa Bites on their own, with ketchup/choice of chutney and definitely with tea/coffee.
You can also store them in an air-tight container for 2-3 days.
Insider Tips / Finer Points :
Feel free to make the potato mix according to your taste / choice.
You may also use all-purpose flour(Maida) instead of whole wheat flour.
The time of baking varies from oven to oven so keep an eye after 30 minutes; it is done when it becomes golden brown in colour.
If you want, you can also deep fry them in oil.
