Samosas are deep fried Indian snack. Mashed potatoes with spices stuffed inside an all-purpose flour covering. They are addictive and can be made into samosas, puffs, kachoris, etc.....There are innumerous possibilities. The freshly crushed cumin and coriander add tons of flavor to the potatoes. Traditional samosa crust is not flaky at all. Using puff pastry for a crust is a great idea. It's kind of where the western flaky crust meets the spicy Indian samosa filling. It can be compared to a happy marriage..hahaha......the end result is always divine. Melt in the mouth buttery flaky crust with potatoes, I guess there is no need for further elaboration. This can be a great appetizer for a get-together or parties and it will be a hit always for sure. Having frozen puff pastry sheets comes in handy when you need to make this appetizer/snack.
Puff pastry pinwheels are easy to make and also help in sized portions. Smaller sized ones are always good for parties. It helps in reducing wastage as well as in controlling portion sizes when you have a feast to indulge in. I am posting this for the Puff Pastry event from Our Dinner Table.

If using these for mini appetizers, the above-mentioned filling is perfect.
If using as a big snack, double the amount of filling, for a perfect samosa puff pastry.
