Nigerian chin chin is an all time favorite and I absolutely love making it. You’ll have to get your hands messy with this one but trust me its all worth it in the end! To make this delicious crunchy snack, follow the recipe below.
What you’ll need:
- 3½ cups of flour (400 grams)
- 1teaspoon of Baking powder
- ½ cup of sugar
- 150 grams of Margarine
- 1 cup of liquid milk
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
lets get into it!
Step 1: Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, (flour, baking powder, sugar, nutmeg). Make sure its well incorporated then add your margarine and mix this thoroughly with your hands until it has a breadcrumb like texture.
Step 2: Now mix the egg and milk together then add it to the dry ingredients. Mix it all together to form a dough. I usually cover it with a cloth and leave it for 15 minutes before I roll it out but this is optional.
Step 3: Roll out the dough on a flat surface and begin to roll it out with a rolling pin. Then using a knife, cut vertically and horizontally on the dough until you have perfect squares.
Step 4: Heat up some oil in a pan and once its hot put your cut dough pieces into the pan and let it fry. When it’s done frying, make sure you use some kitchen towel to get that excess oil off. Also wait for 15 minutes for it to cool…and there you have it! Your chin chin is ready!!!!!!!
