Pinwheel Sandwich is a delicious finger food made with uncut bread slices rolled as a log. They are an amazing kid-friendly snack and a perfect for kids birthday party or even for adults.
All my childhood memories are strongly entrenched with eating these delicious Pinwheel Sandwiches.
I always praise my mom’s cooking, not only because of cooking Indian staple diet of dal, rice, sabzi, roti but also introduced us to all types of home-made international food – vegetable in white sauce, pizza, cakes, chowmein, chopsuey, and many other such delights.
These sandwiches though not really international cuisine was a revolutionary take on sandwiches in those days and even today.
I make it quite often specially for kids parties at my place and everyone loves them.

This a sandwich which my mom used to make while we were kids and I loved it. I still love it very much and got my mother to make it again for me while I was visiting her. Here is my favourite sandwich made by mom and enjoyed by me.
I bet no one can eat just one.
This tastes so good, I can’t describe. Even my son lapped it up happily which is quite an achievement as he is as fussy an eater as a kid can be. I can eat slices of it without keeping a tab.
- Wet cheesecloth or fine muslin. Spread on a tabletop or work surface.
- Take a rolling pin & lightly roll 3 slices of bread separately, as to slightly flatten the bread slice without breaking it.
- Now spread butter on one slice, chutney on second & sauce on third slice.
- Place all slices on top of each other with butter slice in middle.
- Now take one end (smaller edge) of the bread sandwich & start rolling it towards the other end. Roll firmly & evenly.
- Once rolled, roll them in aluminium foil or cling film tightly. I had run out of foil/ film so I used plain paper.
- Twist the edges of the foil/ film like a toffee. Now refrigerate for 1/2-1 hr or even overnight.
- Remove from refrigerator, slice & serve cold with tea or coffee or in kid’s tiffin. :)
