Pinwheel samosa, potato bhakarvadi -Home made pastry slices filled with mildly spiced potato mixture
Pinwheel samosa ,potato bhakarvadi is an easy and quick recipe to follow. It is an easier version of making traditional aloo samosa. Samosa making needs some effort and expertise to shape and seal it perfectly.
Pinwheel samosa is very easier as compared to samosa.The filling is almost similar ,just in samosa we keep chunky potatoes and in this bhakarwadi the potatoes are mashed or grated so they will stick to the rolled roti else the filling will ooze out while rolling.
The dough is made with refined flour but you can also use half wheat and half refined flour. For the filling I have used only potatoes but you can add steamed and grated carrots or mashed peas in it. The rolled chapati should be thin then only the rolls will turn out crisp. Instead of deep frying you can bake these bhakarvadi’s in hot oven at 200 degree or use an air fryer to fry.
