Chin chin 

This a crunchy deep fried snack made in Nigeria. This recipe is not for very hard or soft chin chin, it’s just in the middle. For very hard chin chin I will advice you leave out eggs and baking powder.

Ingredients :

  • 950g plain flour 
  • 300g margarine 
  • 200g sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs 
  • 100ml evaporated milk 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • Vegetable oil for frying 


  • In a small bowl mix sugar and milk together and keep aside. 
  • Beat eggs and set aside . 
  • Sieve flour into a large bowl , add salt, cinnamon and baking powder and mix together .
  • Scoop in your margarine into the bowl with your dry ingredients.
  • using the tips of your fingers mix together till it looks like bread crumbs. 


  • Pour in your egg and sugar/milk mixture. Mix together till you form a dough . 
  • Sprinkle flour on a clean surface , put your dough on it and knead till very smooth and has elasticity. using your rolling pin  , roll the dough out  to about 1/4inch thick. 
    Cut your dough into any shape you want .    
  • Transfer to a lightly floured tray 

  •   Heat your oil and deep fry , stir continuously till golden  brown. Don’t fry a lot at once so it does not soak up too much oil .
  • Scoop out into a tray lined with paper napkins and allow to cool. 
  • Store in an airtight container and enjoy .
