Chili Paneer Pinwheel

Chili paneer pinwheels are a great party treat for an appetizer or finger food. They are relatively easy to make and provide for an interesting twist on an Indian snack. You may make different kinds of pinwheels using the same dough. For example, a samosa pinwheel or green peas pinwheel. You may make pinwheels out of any vegetables. They are a mouthwatering snack!
