HOW TO MAKE NIGERIAN CHIN CHIN WITH EGG AND MILK

 Chin chin can have uneven shapes for a change.
This chin chin has a very light crunch because of the addition of eggs. The coconutty chin chin and good Nigerian chin chin turned out very crunchy but this is different. Those who don't like to have
a headache trying to chew chin chin will love this recipe. A light crunch like when you bite on baby carrots and crisp too. When the good chin chin was shared on Social Media, I remember a comment that asked if eggs can be added to chin chin. Yes. You can add eggs but not if you want a dog waking crunch. Eggs help to reduce the hardness in chin chin. When I made chin chin for my family, never for me. But surprisingly, these succeeded in making me enjoy them. Used my basic chin chin ingredients and same chin chin recipe but added an egg to this recipe. When I make chin chin, the good chin chin recipe used here is what we always use and it never disappoints. Add an egg and you create this not too crunchy chin chin. When we need to make much, all we do is multiply the ingredients and fry. Different hands did the cutting of the chin chin, hence the different shapes and sizes. My four year old wanted to show that he can cut chin chin, that's his own looking really beautiful with cuts and scrapes all over.




INGREDIENTS:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
]1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon butter (Optional) if you want it more crunchy, leave the butter out use just egg.
1 egg
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup warm water (250 ml)
Vegetable oil for deep frying the chin chin

NIGERIAN EGG AND MILK CHIN CHIN METHOD:

  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl, add all the ingredients except the egg and water.

  2. With your fingers, mix and work on the flour until you see crumbs like bread crumbs.

  3. Add the egg and mix again with your fingers, you'll see even more crumbs now as it cannot properly mix until water is added.

  4. Add the water and mix well. If it gets too sticky, you can always sprinkle some flour to control thye stickiness.

  5. On a lightly floured flat surface, roll the dough till flat.

  6. Cut with a pizza cutter by making long dough strips and cutting across the stripes.

  7. Fry in medium not very hot oil. Fry till brown, remove from oil into a strainer or colander or any container that can drain out excess oil. You can place paper napkins in the container to help dry oil in the egg and milk chin chin

  8. Serve with a cold drink and start cleaning your kitchen at once before flour gets more messy. 

HOW TO CLEAN A SURFACE COVERED WITH BAKING FLOUR:
Do not pour water on flour to clean. brush the excess flour together and pack with a parker, then scrub area with a damp sponge. When done scrubbing with the soapy damp sponge, get a napkin and wipe clean. That's all.
Happy Weekend!
