never knew it was so simple to make chin-chin :p ..so does it become hard on its own?

HoneyDame said...

I could almost swear you are reading my mind!!!!
I was just thinking about chinchin over the weekend, while I was making some meat pie. I guess that will be my pastry for this weekend!

@Kitkat :it's very simple dear. if you like the harder version, omit that baking powder and hard in a little more flour.
@Honeydame: hahha..great minds :D
@IFNA : you know you can do it babes, spend an extra hour at the gym and you can have a cup :)

I'm gona try your recipe hopefully it'll come out looking as good as yours. All the online recipes I've tried in the past were disasters.

Can you use vegetable oil instead of melted butter?

Natural Nigerian said...

Okay, I have a challenge for you (if you are up to it).

How can you make chin chin healthier? (I think I just heard some of my Nigerian ancestors turn in their graves at the thought of "healthy" chin chin, lol!). For example, can we use 3/4 wheat flour and 1/4 white flour? Can we use coconut oil intead of vegetable oil?

Naturally, I have sefish reasons for asking. If I am going to keep looking at all the lovely food on your blog, I am going to want to try some...so tell me, any healthy variants? Thanks!

Pretty Lashes said...

Yum YUM!!! There's absolutely NOTHING in this world better than Chin Chin with Puff Puff and some ice cold Fanta... unfortunately, my waistline agrees with this and has reacted in the only way it knows how to, expand :-)

Naijamum said...

I have now come to the conclusion that you were sent to terrorise all of us who are struggling with weight loss.
Anyway, you win...I now hear chin-chin and ice cold coke calling my name from the Naija shop I go to regularly....*sigh*

BTW - Can I just say that your blog and pictures are fantastic.

9jaFOODie said...

@Prism... It's as straight forward as it looks. let me know ao it turns out.
@NiceAnon: lol...lol.... make some food jor..
@Nikki..Yum chin chin
@Anon: I have never tried vegetable oil.
@Natural Nigerian: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!. lol... definitely, recipes can be remixed to be a lot healthier.Coconut oil is worse in comparison to canola or vegetable oil, it is very high in saturated fat. I will try whole wheat or whole grain flour and maybe bake the dough instead of deep frying it. I am sure it will taste totally difft. anyways, my take on food is this "it's not always what you eat, it's how much you eat". I have lost 30pounds in the past 3 years and I didn't do it by starving myself.

9jaFOODie said...

@PrettyLashes.... Fanta! now I want fanta. lol.... U can eat whatever you want, just invest in some Power90 DVD. I will rather work out and eat what I want :D.

@nijamum: yeiiiii....thank you thank you *jumping for joy*...awww...thanks for the kind words.
Indulge in good food :)

hello 9ja foodie, is the frying shallow frying or the opposite? thanks

9jaFOODie said...

It's deep frying.

Vickii said...

I don't think my waistline needs to know how to make home-made chin chin! But it's too late now and God knows I'm going to try this at some point - thanks for the recipe, but no thanks for the pounds I'm bound to put on eating it ALL myself ;p

Great blog! I don't cook Naija food enough so you'll be my new reference point when I do :)

9jaFOODie said...

lol... Dear Vickii, I hereby apologize to your waistline in advance :D
AWWWW.... Thanks! let me know if you ever need a special recipe or clarification.

bolanle said...

Hi,i just came across your blog yesterday and since i have not been myself.Your blog is really the 'Bomb'.I almost cried to find the 'white soup'recipe.Thank you so much but a question where do you find all the Nija ingredients readily since you reside in Canada like i do.

9jaFOODie said...

@Bolanle...awwwwww, welcome to MAC, I hope you enjoy your time here. There is an African store in the city I live in, I frequent there, Super Store (Loblaws) carries ethnic food as well.
