  1. 3 cups of all purpose flour

  4. 170 g margarine / butter
  5. 2 cups of milk

    • In a different bowl we will be doing the wet mixture crack egg, pour milk, and add sugar and mix properly until sugar is completly melted.

    • Now put both mixtures together .Gently add wet mixture into dry mixture and mix with your hands properly. 

    • Dump dough into the kitchen work surface and knead properly until you achieve a consistency of slightly stretchy but mot sticky dough. ( You might add some water if you think your dough is hard.

    • Divide dough into little pieces and roll with a rolling pin. After stretching with a rolling pin , you will have a flat dough.  Cut dough into the shape of your choice and size. I prefer little square cut . I also prefeŕ the machine thin smooth cuts.

    • In a frying pan, pour some vegetable oil and set on medium heat. When oil is hot start frying your chin chin. Remove from oil immidiately it’s golden brown.

      The recipe does not seem to be accurate , 2 cups of milk added to the said measurement make the dough soggy,
