A starter with a super exotic touch, the Cheesy Spring Onion Cigars will floor all your guests with its amazingly cheesy texture and peppy flavour. Since it is made with readymade samosa pattis, this starter has a wonderfully crisp cover, and is also quite easy to prepare! You will thoroughly enjoy the strong scents of spring onions and the gooey mouth-feel typical of cheesy starters! However, remember like all cheese-based snacks, this must be served immediately on preparation before the cheese hardens.


For the stuffing
Grated processed cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Finely chopped spring onions 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (green and white)
Finely chopped green chillies 2 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Other ingredients
Samosa pattis 9
Oil 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (For deep frying)
For maida water mixture
Maida 2 Tablespoon
Water 3 Tablespoon



For the stuffing

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients. Set aside.


Cut each samosa patti into 3 to get 75 mm. X 62 mm. (3" x 2½") rectangular pieces. You will get 27 pieces in all. 

Place one piece of the samosa patti on a clean, dry surface and place 1 tsp of the stuffing at one corner of a samosa patti piece. Roll it up tighly and seal using the maida-water mixture. Seal both the open ends also with the maida-water mixture. 

Repeat wit the remaining pattis and stuffing to make 26 more cigars.

Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, deep-fry a few cigars at a time, on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper. 


Serve immediately with Schezuan sauce.
