Tortilla Pinwheel Lollipops, I found it a quite interesting recipe while browsing for recipes with tortilla. Sometimes kids lunch box can be boring with routines. But with few kids who loves their food to be more appealing, such as slight changes and presentation, makes a boring lunch to be interesting and memorable. This tortilla pinwheels are quite simple, completely healthy and very easy to try with kids. Even grown ups will easily fall in love with these lollipops.

After trying out this recipe I found this could be a best party nibbles, instead of sitting hours and hours of cooking in kitchen for guests. I am thrilled to try this pinwheel lollies for my daugther's birthday party. I have made several times since I discovered this recipe and they are simple, easy and delicious. They are perfect for kids lunch box or after school snacks. 

Such a versatile recipe to adapt and follow with your own desire of ingredients to sneak inside the tortilla, make it a savoury or sweet rolls. I will soon share many recipes using tortilla that are extremely easy to try at home.

Preparation  Time : 15 minutes + Setting Time

Yield : 8-12 rollups


Tortilla - 2, ready to use
Paneer - 1/2 cup crumbled
Fresh Cream -1/2 cup (I used Nestle)
Mint leaves - 2 tbsp, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 medium(semi ripe), sliced
Cabbage - 1/4 cup, shredded
Carrrot - 1/4 cup,grated
Red Raddish - 1/4 cup, grated
Garlic - 1 clove, crushed
Salt & pepper
Olive oil - 1tbsp


  • Blend the paneer and cream in mixie or processor until smooth with salt added. Mix the chopped mint leaves to it. 

  • In a large mixing bowl combine all the vegetables with crushed garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss it. 

  • Heat the pan, place the tortilla, add little oil and fry both sides. Now place tortilla on a working top, spread the cream cheese evenly. Top it up with the vegetable mix. Roll it tightly without spilling out.

  • Wrap this tortilla roll with aluminium foil or cling wrapper and refrigerate for an hour to set. This can even be set for overnight in fridge. If you don't have time to keep in fridge, still it works.Slice around 2 inch rolls of each tortilla using knife. 

  • Insert a tooth-pick or lollipop sticks to each roll and serve. Since I don't have lollipop sticks in hand I used tooth-picks. Best for kiddo lunch box.


  • The same recipe can also be tried in chappati or roti in place of tortilla.
  • Usually cream cheese is used to make this pinwheel but for a change I tired with homemade paneer and cream to make this pinwheels. 
  • This recipe is just an idea, you can make innovative pinwheels as such that are easy and tasty.
