Spinach Swirls - Desi Style

Time for a Savory Snack!!!!!!


This is a very buttery and flakey savory pastry. To make it more interesting I have tried to infuse some Indian flavors like garam masala and cumin. This is a very good party snack which can be made with a ease and the flavors can be adjusted according to one’s wish… And it is going to be one of the kids favorite finger food.

I would like to send this recipe to the event Veggie/Fruit A Month. For the theme Spinach, hosted by Reshmi of Rasoi. All the best for hosting the event....



Ingredients :
Puff pastry - 1 sheet
Fresh spinach - 1 cup packed
Onions - 2 tablespoon very finely minced
Shredded swiss cheese - ½ cup
Garlic - 2 cloves
Green chilli paste - ¼ teapsoon
Cumin powder - ¼ teaspoon
Garam Masala powder - ¼ teaspoon
Salt as required Melted butter for brushing


Procedure : 

Thaw the puff pastry on room temprature for 45 mins. Preheat the oven for 400 degree.

Heat oil in a pan and add onions and satue it then add the garlic and green chilli paste.

Chop the spinach to finely and add it to the pan and satue untill the spinach is wilted completely. Finnaly add the garam masala powder, cumin powder, salt and mix well. Let it cool completely.

Sprinkle the work space with some all purpous flour and open the puff pastry sheet. Take a rooling pin and roll it over to smooth out the inner side of the puff pastry.

Now brush the surface with melted butter. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Then top it with the spinach mixture.

Now roll the puff pastry to form a swril effect. Roll it tight. Now cut the rolled puff pastry into ¼ inch circles.

Arrange then on a cookie sheet leaving enough space in between. Now brush the top with some melted butter and bake it for 20 mins or untill the top is golden brown in color.

Note: Thaw the puff pastery completly. If it is still frozen in the middle, then increse the baking time till the pastry cook completly.
