Paneer Spinach Pinwheels

When you want to make a quick snack for your family or you need to entertain your guests without you spending much time in the kitchen, then this one is for you. Again one more recipe with my favorite Paneer. I got inspired by this one in Shanavi's blog. I added spinach to paneer to make it bit colorful and interesting.


Ingredients:
Puff pastry - 1 sheet 
Paneer grated - 1/2 cup
Spinach - handful, blanched, chopped (Can be substituted with mint/coriander or any herb of your choice)
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Chaat masala powder - 1/2 tsp (This one actually gives a kick)
Turmeric powder - a big pinch
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1/4 tsp
Method: 
Thaw the puff pastry sheet for a minimum of 30 mins. Preheat the oven to 435 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the grated paneer, chilli powder, cumin powder, chaat masala, turmeric powder and salt. You may actually play with the spices for different combinations. Heat oil in a small skillet and saute the paneer mix for 20 secs (not more than that). Blanch the spinach in hot water for 5 mins and chop finely. Mix it well with the paneer mixture. In a floured board, spread the pastry sheet and flour the sheet. Stretch it out a bit with a rolling pin to remove the fold crease. Spread the paneer mixture on the sheet leaving one inch on one side of the sheet (like a margin on the paper). Roll the sheet from the opposite side of the space tightly. Apply water on the space and seal the roll. Use a sharp or serrated knife and cut into 1/2" pieces. Place the cut rolls in the cookie sheet with a minimum of 1" gap for the pinwheels to spread out. Bake for 15-20 mins until the pinwheels are crisp and golden. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  8. I love puff pastry pinwheels, they are so easy to make. I use a classic ham and cheese filling. Palak paneer sounds a great idea.
