It’s snack time — Chin Chin is a staple snack time favorite in Nigeria. This is a delicious crunchy snack that you won’t just stop at a handful.
- 300 ml of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 3 Cups of Granulated White Sugar
- 3 Teaspoons of Ground Nutmeg
- 2 Cups of Vegetable Oil Spread
- 10 Cups of Unbleached Flour
- Vegetable Oil for Frying
- Mix the almond milk and sugar in a large mixing bowl — I used a stand mixer for this a mix on low for 1 minute.
- Then Add nutmeg and vegetable oil spread from to milk and sugar mix thoroughly for 2 minutes
- Add flour gradually (using a cup to add to mixing bowl), mix thoroughly until smooth dough is achieved.
- Take the dough out of the bowl and place on a flat surface and start kneading gently with a rolling pin (I divided the dough in half)
- When the dough is flat, using a pastry wheel or table knife (I used a pastry wheel (it’s blunt) to prevent scratches on my counter top), cut into desired sizes.
- Add vegetable oil in fryer or a deep non stick pot, the oil should be at least 3 inches deep in the pot or fryer. Heat up the oil on medium heat.
- Add cut up dough to hot oil to deep fry.
- While frying, continuously stir to prevent clumping and sticking until the dough is now golden brown.
- Scoop the fried pieces into a flat tray lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil.
- When chin chin has cooled down completely, it is now ready for snacking especially if you haven’t started before the cool down. Haha
- Serve with a chilled drink or warm tea — Enjoy
