veg pinwheel puffs

Veg puffs are very common in india in bakeries and i never thought that one day i would be making these at home until i came here to australia.Here, we get easily ready made puff pastry sheets which i suppose is quite handy and easier also we can make whenever we are feeling lazy to cook or if we have some last moment guests,i have tried various fillings but in regular puff shapes but one day when i went through nayana's blog,i was quite attracted to this shape of pinwheel and thought it will be quite handy for a party thus i made these for my daughter's birthday party and all my friends really liked it :P.I am really sorry for the bad photography (taken by my husband ;) ) as i was too busy with the preparations and really was tied up .
ingredients :
2 cups finely chopped mixed vegetables (carrot,potatoes,peas,french beans, very small florets of  cauliflower etc )
1 onion finely chopped
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2-3 store bought puff pastry sheets
2 tsp red chilli pwd
1 tsp garam masala
2 tsps corriander pwd
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
lemon juice to taste
method :
Heat oil,add onions and fry till transparent,add ginger garlic paste,add all the chopped vegetables, cover and let it cook till tender on a low heat,add all the masalas and fry for some time.Mix well and keep aside.Preheat the oven on 200 c .Thaw the pastry sheets for 5-10 mins,sprinkle some dry plain flour on the surface and place one pastry sheet on it and spread a serving spoon full of vegetable mixture all over ,from one side of the sheet gently start rolling till the other end and cut into equal wheels using a sharp knife ( do roll the knife in some dry flour to avoid the mixture sticking to the sheets while cutting ).Place these wheels on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10-15 mins or till browned ( pls keep checking as there are different oven settings ).Serve hot with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
