Excellent Party Starter/ Breakfast/Lunch Box

Pinwheel Sandwich is also a wonderful starter to be served in your parties. When you toss these in little oil with mustard seeds, they taste out of the world! My guests have always loved it. Whoever eats it once wants to have more and more of it.

At the same time, it is good to served in the breakfast or pack in lunch box. You can make it the previous day and in the morning, just cut roundels and pack in the lunch box. Isn’t it cool!

Few Ingredients Recipe

Making Pinwheel sandwiches is quite easy. Only 4 ingredients are required but you need to prepare them in advance.

Made with very few ingredients it is a wholesome snack in itself. Yes, wholesome as it is not required to be served with any dip/sauce.

Make-Ahead Snacks

And the best thing is that you make it in advance. The rolls are made and kept in the refrigerator. At the time of serving, take out, cut roundels, saute in little oil and are ready to be served.

Raw Or Cooked?

Some people like it raw but trust me, when cooked a little, just 1 to 2 minutes only, their taste changes altogether and you can’t resist yourself.

Choice Of Filling

I have used green chutney, tomato ketchup and potatoes in this recipe. You can replace potatoes with Paneer Bhurji or any other veggie. Cheese or mayonnaise can also be used in place of filling. Basically, use anything of your choice and liking.
