Chin Chin


Chin Chin is a light refreshment for you and your guests.


Plain Floor

Powdered milk

Granulated sugar


Ground nutmeg

Vegetable Oil (for frying)


Mix the milk and sugar in a bowl and leave to soak

Note: If you are using powdered milk, mix the milk and sugar

One way to get the sugar to dissolve fast is to grind it in a dry mill before mixing it with other ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix the ground nutmeg and flour, then rub the margarine into the flour till it has mixed well with the flour, leaving no lumps

Add the sugar/milk mixture to the margarine/flour mixture and mix by hand till a smooth dough is achieved

Place the dough on a flat surface and start kneading gently with a dough roller

When the dough is flat, cut into desired sizes

Deep-fry in hot vegetable oil

While frying, continuously stir the chin chin till you get a golden brown color

Scoop the fried pieces onto a flat tray to dry and cool down quickly

When the chin chin has cooled completely, store in a dry, airtight container
