Potato pinwheels

This one is just a slight variant of potato puffs we get in India.

1 package puff pastry sheets (contains 2 sheets), thaw according to instructions
1tbspn water

Potato filling:
3-4 boiled potatoes (peeled and mashed)
4 tbs oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green chili , finely chopped
salt  to taste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
2 tbs lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheets with aluminium foil and grease. 

Heat pan with oil. Add onions until brown around edges. Add  chili. Add potatoes  and all spices. Mix together. Add lemon juice and stir. Taste and adjust spices accordingly. Once mixture has cooled, roll out puff pastry. Spread mixture on puff pastry. Roll puff pastry from shortest end to top making sure to roll tight. You should have enough potato mixture for both rolls of puff pastry. Repeat with second sheet of puff pastry. Cut rolls into slices and place on cookie sheets.  Bake in oven for 20 -25 minutes until golden brown.
