  2. Place a piece of the samosa patti on a flat dry surface and place a portion of the filling at one pointed edge.
  3. Roll each patti towards the opposite pointed edge and stick the edges with a little flour paste to form a cylindrical shape.
  4. Seal the edge of the samosa patti using a little of the flour paste.
  5. Repeat with the remaining pattis and filling to make more cigars.
  6. Heat a broad non-stick pan or kadhai with oil and deep-fry a few cigars at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  7. Serve immediately with honey chilli sauce.

The combo of spinach along with cheese is always super but when filled inside a samosa patti it is just so crispy and crunchy. The honey chilli sauce served with it is just so good, they are a little time consuming to make but they are worth every effort made to make these.
