Cabbage (chopped) – 1/2 cup
Capsicum (chopped) – 1 large

Salt – 1/2 tsp
Black pepper – 1/2 tsp


Mix 1 cup cream cheese, onions, tomatoes, capsicum and  cabbage in large mixing bowl.

Add green chutney, salt and black pepper in that and mix very well.

Warm the tortillas on both sides for few seconds without oil. ( I used ready-made tortillas but you can make it at home). Spread a nice thick layer of cream cheese mixture on roasted tortillas.

– Roll it tightly and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it till its served or for 1 hour.

Take it outside from the refrigerator before serving. Remove tortilla roll from plastic wrap and cut it into thick slices.

Use toothpicks for serving. ( You can also prepare these pinwheels and keep ready in advance by covering them and putting in refrigerator.

And yummy cheesy pinwheels are ready!! 🙂
