BM #89 Week 2 Day 1 - 

I have chosen to highlight some 'Stuffed Dishes' for this week. To make the best use of the puff pastry sheet in my freezer, I made these pinwheel puffs with a paneer-spinach filling which was an instant hit with the kids and adults alike. I found a variation of this recipe on the box of the frozen puff pastry sheet.

My little one likes to be surprised by such goodies when she comes back from school. So another winner of a recipe here.

Recipe Source
Ingredients - 

Puff Pastry Sheet 1 (I used the frozen one)
Spinach 1 cup
Paneer 1/2 cup
Mixed Nuts, Crushed 2 Tbsp
Green chilies 2 or as needed
Salt, Red Chili Powder as needed
Onion Powder, Garlic Powder a dash each
Pasta /Pizza Sauce 2 Tbsp
Shredded Cheese (Optional - I didn't use)

Method Of Preparation -

Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 40 minutes as per the instructions on the package.

Blanch spinach and drain excess water. Chop finely. If using frozen spinach, pulse it in a food processor. Crush Paneer, mixed nuts, and green chilies.

In a mixing bowl, add in the paneer crumble, pulsed spinach, salt, red chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix well and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 °F.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Spread the puff pastry sheet on a clean, floured work space and roll it slightly to stretch it.

Spread the Pizza/Pasta Sauce evenly on the puff pastry sheet. 

Spread the paneer-spinach mixture evenly all over the puff pastry sheet.

From one side tightly roll the sheet like a carpet or jelly roll.

Make 18 slices 1 centimeter apart and place the slices on the prepared baking tray. 

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until they become golden brown.

Serve with any sauce or as is.
