Samosa Pinwheels Using Fortune Vivo Diabetes-Care Oil

I have harped again and again about how our fast-paced lifestyle is the primary cause of diseases like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Anxiety, etc. I was just discussing with my children yesterday about how the majority of the kids in the United States are increasingly becoming lactose intolerant or gluten intolerant, or have a nut allergy, or have everything I just mentioned, which was practically unheard of just a decade ago. Also, it is very well-known that India is the Diabetes capital of the world! It is high time we start paying attention to what we eat.

So when I got an opportunity to try Fortune Vivo Diabetes-Care Oil, I did not let it go. Fortune Vivo Diabetes-Care Oil is a blended vegetable oil containing 80% rice bran oil and 20% sesame oil. It is clinically proven to control Diabetes. Before you shrug off by saying that you wouldn't need it as you aren't diabetic, hear me out: It is fit for entire family even if no one is Diabetic as it helps in controlling metabolic disorders too!

My mother, who happens to be a diabetic, visited me today for tea- it gave me a perfect occasion to test out Fortune Vivo Diabetes-Care Oil. Thus, I ended up making these Samosa Pinwheels...


For Dough
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp semolina 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp oil 
  • Water, for kneading+ 1/4 cup
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • A pinch of salt
For Filling
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated 
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped 
  • 1 small capsicum, finely chopped 
  • 4 tbsp grated cheese
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder 
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp dried mango (Amchur) powder 
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala powder 
  • Salt to taste 


For Dough

1.In a big bowl, add all purpose flour, semolina, salt and oil.

2.Combine them together into a loose dough.

3. Now add water as required to make a soft and non-sticky dough.

4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave it aside for 15-20 minutes

For Filling

1. Take a bowl and put in the mashed potatoes, grated carrots, capsicum, garlic, red chilli powder, green chilli, onion, salt, black pepper powder, garam masala, mango (amchur) powder.

2. Mix them all thoughly together and form the mixture into big balls.

For Assembling

1. Knead the rested dough for a minute and form balls out of it. Flatten the balls and roll the dough out into 20-25 cms. diameter circles.

2. Now spread the grated cheese over the rolled out dough. 

3. Put the filling ball into the center and flatten it out, so that the filling covers the entire dough circle. Leave 1 cms along the edges for sticking.

4.Now gently fold the dough as shown in the picture.

5.Use a bit of water to seal the edges.

6.Now with a sharp knife cut into a medium thick slice.

7. In a bowl, take 3tbsp all purpose flour, cornflour, salt and 1/4 cup water and combine into a very thin batter. We will be using this batter to dip the pinwheels in.

8. Now take a kadhai. Heat oil for shallow frying.

9. Dip the pinwheels into the batter and gently shallow fry them in the oil until they are golden brown in colour, turning occasionally.

10. Drain excess oil out on a kitchen-paper or tissue paper. Serve with sauces and chutneys of your liking.

Note: To make it healthier, you can mix whole wheat flour with all purpose flour. You can also bake the pinwheels instead of frying.
