How to make:
  • Take a large bowl and pour maida , semolina, salt, oil and carom seed.

  • Mix all the ingredients until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 3 parts and keep aside.

Flour paste/batter:
  • Take a deep bowl and put all purpose flour and make a thin batter by adding water. 
  • Mix it well till no lumps.

For making pinwheels:
  • After 15 minutes uncovered the dough and knead it again for few minutes till it becomes smooth.
  • Divide the dough into three equal portions. 
  • Now take one ball from the dough and roll the ball in the palms of your hands and flatten it. 
  • Place the dough ball over rolling surface and roll out evenly and thinly like a poori using a rolling pin
  • Take one part of the mixture and spread it evenly over the rolled chapatti with the help of spoon. 
  • After spreading the stuffing lift the chapatti from one side and roll it nicely until you have firm log. Apply the water on the edges and seal the ends tightly.
  • Take each slice of pinwheel samosa and press each pieces gently to make flat so that the inner filling looks like a pinwheel.
  • Repeat the same process for rest of the dough to make pinwheel samosa.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium high heat.
  • Dip each Pinwheels Samosa one by one with flour paste and drop them slowly into the hot.
  • Fry the Pinwheels Samosa until they are golden brown on medium low flame, turning occasionally.
  • Take them out over a paper towel or an absorbent paper so that excess oil gets absorbed.
  • Repeat the same process for rest of the batches.

  • Deep fry pinwheels samosa are ready, let's start making samosa in oven also.
