  2. Knead the dough for a minute and divide into 2 equal parts and roll them into balls.
  3. Roll the ball into about 11 inch diameter.
  4. Spread one part of the filling evenly over rolled dough, slightly pressing
  5. Roll the sheet gently, but firmly until you have a nice firm log.
  6. Use a little water to seal the end of the sheet firmly,roll the log gently 6-7 times this helps keeping together.
  7. With a sharp knife slice the both ends about 1 inch long then slice the log into ½ inch thick, this should make about 14 -16 pinwheels.
  8. Press each pinwheel lightly.

Step 3: Frying

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.
  2. The frying pan should have at least 1 inch of oil.
  3. To check if the oil is ready, drop a small piece of dough. The piece of dough should come up but not change color.
  4. Dip the pinwheel in the batter one at a time and slowly drop in the oil in frying pan.
  5. Fry the pinwheels in small batches.
  6. Pinwheels will take about 3 to 4 minutes to cook.
