Pinwheel Potato Rolls with mint flavor

Us Indians are very obsessed with potatoes. Potato compliments so well with almost every vegetable. Other than using potatoes with vegetables, we have aaloo paratha (Aaloo ka Paratha (paratha with spicy potato stuffing)), potato chips and snacks like samosa and kachori which also have potato fillings. So when I thought of trying Pinwheel Rolls, I decided to fill them with boiled potatoes. But I felt that rolls with only potato filling would lack some flavor – might not be tangy enough. I had mint chutney in the fridge – so I flavored these rolls with mint chutney.

Isn’t this an interesting filling with complete Indian taste!!!

You can change the filling as per your taste and liking. With potatoes, paneer can be added or we can shred some cheese on top of the rolls…

I have a post on Coriander Chutney  in the blog. If you are interested, can go through this link as recipe for coriander and mint chutney is same. For mint chutney, just replace coriander leaves with mint leaves.

You should definitely try these rolls. Not very complicated steps, and in pinwheel shape –  rolls look really attractive!

Ingredients :

Maida 2 cups +2 tbsp
Milk powder 1 tbsp
Salt 1 tsp
Sugar 1 tbsp
Instant active yeast 3/4 tsp
Water 1 cup minus 1-2 tbsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Mint chutney(thick) 5 tbsp
Boiled potato mix

Except water, all ingredients should be on room temperature.Water should be slightly warmer than lukewarm but not hot.

Process:

Boiled Potato mix :

Boiled  potatoes
Salt
Asafoetida
Dry mango powder
Garam Masala
Red chilli powder

Chopped green chillies
Chopped green coriander /mint leaves

Peel and mash potatoes and add above mentioned ingredients, mix well and keep this mix aside.

Rolls preparation:

Collect all dry ingredients in a big vessel and mix them. Add water/milk slowly and prepare the dough.

Be careful not to use all water/milk completely. Once all ingredients are together in shape of a rough dough, slowly start kneading the dough by adding one tbsp water at a time and knead it for 12-15 minutes. Keep adding oil during kneading.  Initially, dough will be wet, but slowly it will be pliable and smooth.

Keep the dough in an oil greased pan covered with cling film at a warm place for first proofing. This might take 60 to 90 minutes, depending on how warm or cool your kitchen is.

In the meanwhile, keep your baking tray ready by greasing with oil or by spreading parchment paper.

After first proofing, take out the dough on clean oil greased kitchen counter and punch it gently.

Collect the dough together and roll it into rectangular shape. Apply mint chutney all over the dough with the help of a pastry brush .

Now spread potato mix evenly everywhere. As both my potato mixture and chutney were very spicy, I limited the quantity that I applied and so you can see some gaps in the photo below.

Start rolling the dough and keep it firm.

Once dough takes the shape of a log, seam the edges tight by pinching them.

Cut this log in equal size rolls and keep them in your ready baking tray by maintaining some gap between them so that during baking rolls have enough space to puff up. Apply some oil on them and keep them at a warm place for second proofing. Second proofing will be over in 20/30 minutes.

Just 10 minutes before second proofing time is getting over, preheat oven at 180 degrees. Apply milk on rolls to avoid them drying during baking and bake them for 20/30 minutes or till they are light brown. Apply butter on warm rolls and relish them with any sauce or chutney along with your tea/coffee ☕

  1. Yum yum!! Even if I were not hungry right now I would very likely end up eating the whole tray of your beautiful pinwheel buns! 😄 Sounds really delicious and I will have to try this out in winter when I’m more into baking. 😊

  2. I followed the recipe to the letter but surely I lacked some flavor. We will make another attempt. I have little experience in cooking. Yours looks delicious. A good weekend

    1. Mac, you really tried them!!
      Thank you so much for your feedback 😊 🤗
      Yes, flavours can be improved later as we all all have separate taste buds.
      You too have a great Sunday.

  3. Oh my, I think I am going to regret coming here! What a truly dangerous blog you have, dear Deeksha! … (yumm! tasty! tasty! … 😉 🙂 🙂 )
