What is Chin Chin?

Chin-Chin is a popular fried Nigerian Snacks. It was formerly an official wedding snacks before the advent of appetizers such as small chops in Nigeria. It is an official Christmas snacks used to entertain visitors, sent out as gifting in hamper baskets, or just a stable snacks to keep one’s mouth busy during the Christmas holiday.

Chin Chin is known as atchomon in Togo and Benin, achomo in Ghana, and croquette or Chin Chin in Cameroon. In other words it is not native anymore to Nigerians alone even though it originated from Nigeria.

What are the Ingredients for my Crunchy Milky Chin Chin recipe?

Traditionally, Chin chin is made of a dough containing flour, sugar, butter, milk, egg, and baking powder. This dough is then rolled out and cut into different shapes based on individual preferences and deep-fried in oil or baked.

The ingredients for my crunchy Chin-Chin is very much different. It contains :

  • Flour
  • Corn flour : this is my secret ingredient to my soft yet crunchy chin chin. Unlike chin chin made with the rising agent baking powder, this one gives that crisp yet soft texture.
  • Sugar
  • Nutmeg : if you have been following my recipes, you will know I never add artificial preservatives to my treats. Nutmeg here is a natural preservatives and it gives your chin chin a distinct flavour.
  • Powdered Milk : The combination of this powdered milk and the milk flavour gives my Nigerian Chin Chin a milky rich taste.
  • Milk Flavour : This is quite different from Powdered Milk. It contains both powdered milk, sugar and flavour. It is perfect for making pastries or snacks

Also…

  • Egg
  • Margarine / Softened Butter : In Nigeria here, Margarine is mostly or widely used for snacks or pastries. If you’re using butter, make sure it’s softened and unsalted. Butter will give a richer taste, flavour and colour to your chin-chin!
  • Oil : any odourless, colorless oil that you’re comfortable with will do. However since this is a commercial recipe, use groundnut oil.
  • Water : Room temperature water only. You can also use liquid milk BUT that will affect the overall shelf life of your chin chin. Substituting water with milk produces a very rich chin chin which in my own opinion is no longer commercial but an executive chin chin recipe πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Were you searching for baking powder? Gotcha! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ There’s no baking powder in my Nigerian Commercial Crunchy Milky Chin Chin recipe. And yes the recipe still yields a very perfect chin chin that’s soft, and crunchy! Can you believe that?


Another thing about this Nigerian Chin Chin recipe is that it’s a 2-in-one recipe. In other words, I’m sharing my NIGERIAN CHIN-CHIN MIX that you can sell and make extra cash while waiting for that order or as a full housewife.

Next is the actual Milky Chin Chin recipe that you can also fry, package and sell at the comfort of your homes, in malls, at your offices and everywhere else! Have you tried my other Pastries recipes?

Best Tips for Perfect Nigerian Crunchy Milky Chin Chin

  • Do I need to still say this? Well yes. FOLLOW MY CHIN CHIN RECIPE TO THE END. If you wish to have same results like I did, then don’t tweak this recipe yet till you have perfected this base recipe.
  • Don’t knead your chin chin dough. Just like my Nigerian Commercial Meat pie recipe, this dough requires pampering. Don’t use your fist to knead. Only mix with your fingers. If using a stand mixer, use the balloon whisk to mix in the dry items then change to a paddle attachment for wet items.
  • After making the dough, allow it rest for at least 30 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax making the dough easier to handle.
  • Dust your work surface and trays with flour to prevent your dough and chin chin cutouts from sticking to each other.
  • Roll-out your dough to about ΒΌ of an inch. That is, not too flat or too thick. Then cut-out into different preferred shapes
    • You can go further to keep these cut-out or even the whole chin chin dough in a ziplock bag and freeze for later.
  • Fry on medium flames in an oil that’s not too hot. If too hot it will make your chin chin brown quickly and become hard. It will not also fry well. If your oil’s temperature is not hot enough, your chin chin will soak in oil.
  • After frying, strain out oil using a strainer or pour your fried chin chin on a spread serviette or kitchen towel. Allow it cool completely before storing so that your chin chin retains it’s crunchy texture.

So let’s dive right into making my 2-in-one Crunchy Milky Chin Chin Recipe!
