Big Batch Veg. Pastry Wheels

We had a potluck party on the consequent week end of Diwali. It so happened in the last minute that I had to move to the appetizer section from main course as there was a shortage for veg. appetizers! :)

This is what I prepared for the party, its yummy and everyone at the party enjoyed it even though they missed the chance of tasting the south Indian Idli-Sambar-Chutney combo! ;)

Pepperidge farm Pastry sheets - 2 packs [4 sheets]
Milk- 3tablespoons
For the filling
Mozerella cheese -1/2cup
Frozen mixed vegetables pack-1 [250grams]
Chilli powder- 3teaspoons
Corainder powder-2teaspoons
Cumin powder-1 teaspoon
Garam masala -1teaspoon
Coriander leaves to garnish
For the tempering
Cumin seeds-2 teaspoons

Chop the potatoes into small pieces. In a pressure cooker, take the veggies with chilli-coriander-cumin powders,salt and 1/2cup of water. Pressure cook for 2 whistles.

Once the pressure has gone completely, open the cooker and mash the veggies nicely. [as we have added little water, the masala will be thick]

Heat oil in a wide pan,make the tempering with cumin seeds and add the mashed veggies and cook for a few minutes. [in case,the water is more, cook it for few more minutes to make it dry.]

Finally add the garam masala and cilantro,nix well and switch off the stove.

Thaw the pastry sheet for 45minutes. Roll it slightly by dusting some flour. Spread the masala on the pastry sheet, leaving an inch gap on the edges. Sprinkle the cheese evenly.

Tightly roll the pastry sheet from one end, brush little water on the other end and seal the edges. cover the rolls in a clear wrap paper. Continue the process for all the sheets and keep them in the freezer for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 400F. Take the pastry rolls from the freezer, cut into desired size slices, Brush it with milk. [you can do egg wash too.] Arrange them in a lined baking tray, bake for 25 to 30minutes.

Start checking the wheels after 25minutes, take them out once they turn golden in color. let it cool for couple of minutes and take them from the baking tray. Yummy pastry wheels ready to go! :)

Serve warm with ketch-up or hot n sweet sauce. As the party was in our friend's place, I heated the wheels for 10 minutes at 200F before serving. Here is a glance of the nice party we had....
