Step by step procedures for Baking Nigerian Chin Chin
Now that we know the ingredients we need to bake our Chin Chin, let’s look at the step by step process of making some Chin Chin…
Into a large mixing bowl, pour in your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Whisk the dried ingredients together till it is well mixed.
Into step 1, add in your margarine and mix it together using your hand till it forms a bread-like crumbs.
Into step 2 add in your whisked egg and milk vanilla extract (I usually add my vanilla into my milk and stir it together), mix together using your hand to form a dough.
Note if the dough is not well formed, add some water (little) to form a complete dough, then you knead it and use a plastic wrap to cover the bowl and set aside for a period of 2-3 hrs.
Sprinkle some flour on a working surface. Cut a portion of the dough, place it on the working surface and with the aid of a rolling pin, roll the dough upward, downward and side way till you get a flat (but not too thin) size.
With the use of a pizza cutter or a knife, cut out the desired sizes of the chin chin you want. Ensure that they are not too thick or too big.
Put your vegetable oil on a medium heat , when the oil is hot enough, put into the hot oil your cut out dough and fry till it is golden brown. Remove and put on a metal sieve to drain excess oil… Allow to cool and serve.
