Samosa Pinwheels is a slight alternation to the traditional Samosa and is as delicious as the traditional samosas and yet they are quite easy than the samosa as the outer cover making is not hard as samosas. The stuffing looks like a pinwheel and also the each pinwheel is bite sized and hence the name. Samosa Pinwheels are a rich party appetizer and snack too.
