In Nigerian cuisine, bread is eaten in all the foods. The correct recipe for any bread, or the best bread that can be eaten, is often the subject of kind discussions. The Aylesbury Estate Kaleidoscope Project website reports that bread is preferred by some, while thousands of loaves of sweet and heavy agege bread are sold every day throughout Nigeria, especially in the capital, Lagos. Puff puffs are fried dough balls eaten as a snack. The chin chin, which is a fried Nigerian bread, is sweetened with sugar and eaten as a snack.
Join the dry ingredients, flour, sugar and baking powder, in a large bowl and mix well with a sieve or other utensils.
Add the butter, egg, milk and water to the dry ingredients and use your hands to work the dough until everything is well mixed.
Lightly sprinkle a flat surface or cutting board with flour and use a rolling pin to stretch the dough approximately one third or twice. The stretched dough should be half an inch thick.
Cut the dough with a knife or other cutter into squares half an inch on each side.
Heat about half an inch of oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. The oil should be hot but not smoking.
Place chin-chin pieces in hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove them from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain the excess oil.
Stretch more dough, cut it into pieces and fry until the whole dough is cooked.
Use olive or vegetable oil to fry the chin chin. Make it healthier by using only enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
