Fresh coriander                 - 2 tblspoon chopped

Take out a package of Puff Pastry block to defrost on the counter for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, we will make the filling for it.
Crumble the Paneer in a bowl by hand or grate it with grater.
Now add Red Chili Powder, Cumin Powder, Dry Mango Powder, salt, green chillies and fresh chopped coriander.
Heat Oil in a skillet. Now add the paneer mix to it.
Fry the Paneer mix in the skillet for about 5 minute or so.
Switch off the flame and transfer the mix into another bowl so it cools down faster and is easy to handle.
Now check the pastry block, if it is defrosted.
Once pastry block is defrosted, dust a flat surface with some All-Purpose Flour and put the Puff Pastry on it.
Dust a little more Flour on top of the block and roll out the block to make it a square pastry sheet of 10 inch.
Now either you cut the sheet into half or just spread the chutneys in equal half of the sheet.
Now spread the paneer mix on the sheet, leaving a 1/2 inch border on all 4 sides
Now from one end start to roll the sheet gently into a cylindrical roll as tightly as possible while being gentle.
Once you reach the edge, dab a little water and gently but firmly press the edge in.
Now gently pinch the edges together.
Keep the pastry roll in the fridge for half an hour, so that it can be easy to handle and easy to slice.
Now preheat your oven for 200c.
After half an hour take the pastry roll out of the fridge and slice the roll into roundels. ( like we cut cucumber roundels).
Place these roundels on to a greased baking tray.
Place the in the oven for about 15-20 minutes and pull them out once you see them turning brown.
Once baked keep the Pinwheels on to cooling rack to completely cool down.
Enjoy the Paneer Pinwheel with various chutneys.
