Bread Pinwheels

I tried this snack in a fun healthy way. I used

1 boiled potato
1 big carrot grated
1/2 cup green peas,
1/4 onion chopped
1/4 bunch cilantro chopped
1 tsp chat masala
1/2 tsp cumin powder
a pinch of pepper
1 tsp oil
3 slices of white bread for each roll
or mix grated panner/tofu,grated carrot,beetroot,green peas cilantro,chat masala and season wtih salt and pepper for a colour filling.
I made curry by sauteing onion in very little oil till cooked,then added mashed potato,grated carrot,green peas and chat masala,cumin powder ,pepper and finally seasoned with salt.
Alternately,for the second kind of stuffing just mix grated paneer boiled mashed potato,chopped onions,grated carrot,beet root and green peas with chat masala and season with salt and pepper and this way you can make it even healthier omitting potato if desired and replacing paneer with tofu.As everything is baked,that itself provides good taste and there by avoiding even 1 tsp oil also

Take 3 slices of white bread ,trim the edges and now dip the slice edges in a cup of water and gently squeeze off water if any . Line a small sheet of tin foil and lay the slice on foil.Dip the second slice same as first one and lay it on the edge of first one vertically. Repeat the third one.Gently press on the joints to ensure the slices stick together like a sheet. Now spread the curry ( after it is cooled completely) all over the sheet and start rolling from one end to the other end.Once rolled completely gently roll the whole thing in the lined tin foil and seal the foil ends and refrigerate in the freezer for at least 10 Min's. WIth this quantity of curry I could make 3 such kind of rolls. After 10 Min's,take out the roll and cut into pinwheels,brush them with melted butter and bake in the oven at 375F for 20 Min's or until the bread is golden brown.


  1. Delicious!!! If we get unsliced bread,we can have long slices to roll.Great recipe, thanks:)

  2. I was wondering how you managed to make pinwheels with just slices of bread, 'sealing' them together is a fabulous idea..can't wait to try this!

  3. looks so delicious! i make it with green chutney, will try with this stuffing next time .

  4. @Asha!

    I tried this kind of roll with butter,tomato ketchup and green chutney.but I did not like it that much.So tried this way and it was superb
    Thanks Lavanya
