How To Prepare Soft Yummy Chin Chin At Home

I don't know about you, but a lot of people I know (including me) cannot pass a chin-chin seller and not be tempted to grab one. Here in Nigeria, chin-chin is a very delicious and yummy deep-fried crunchy snack. It's more like a finger food (small chop) and is sometimes included in event menu. It's also sold in almost in every place you look and I guess it's because a good number of Nigerians love it. Besides, its easy to munch and is very good to fight hunger at the moment! Most people cant really get enough of it. It really is a very useful snack and can even be taken as breakfast with any hot beverage (or cold as the weather dictates).


The chin-chin market is a very good one. As a housewife or someone who just want to get an extra income, I bet you can try this. It is one of the easiest Nigerian snack to make and can be stored for as long as 4-5 weeks if stored in an airtight container and kept in secure places. 
So, to start making your own chin-chin you will need these 

Ingredients:
- 2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoonful vanilla flavour 
- 63g margarine (1/4 sachet of margarine )
- ¼  cup sugar 
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg 
- ¼  teaspoonful baking powder 
- 1 tablespoon milk (optional)
Salt to taste 
- 3/4 - 1 cup water 

When you've gotten all that, you can then proceed to make your very own delightful and crunchy chin-chin. 


Method:
- Measure out all the powdered ingredients into a clean bowl and mix. 
- Make syrup out of the sugar, ½ cup of water and flavour. Set aside 
- Add margarine to the flour mixture and rub it in to form crumbs. 
- Add the egg and milk (if liquid) and mix. 
- Make a well in the flour mixture and add the syrup. Mix until well incorporated. 
- Add the remaining ½ cup water little at a time. Knead into a smooth dough and leave to rest for a minute. 
- Cut out some of the dough onto a floured surface; roll out with a rolling pin, cut horizontally into long strands using a knife or wheel cutter. 


- Dice the strands into desired sizes and deep fry until golden brown. 
- Scoop into a sieve and leave to cool. 
- Serve or use as desired. Chin-chin can be served with drinks like local drinks, fruit juices, natural drinks etc and can also be eaten alone anytime, anywhere. 


There you go! So simple I can already imagine you making yours!
