3 cups of flour
1 spoon of ground nutmeg
1 spoon of milk flavoring

Mix the ground nutmeg and flour in a separate bowl, then crush the margarine into the flour continue the mixture till it blends.
Add sugar and milk to the margarine and flour mixture, use your hand to mix well until it becomes smooth
Place the dough on a flat surface and knead properly with a rolling pin until all the ingredients are blended. When the dough is flat, cut into any size you like
Pour enough oil into frying pan or a deep pot. Allow it to heat for about 3-4 minutes, then go ahead with the frying of the chin chin in batches.
After each batch, allow the oil to heat again for up to 40 seconds before adding the next batches. Don’t forget to stir the chin chin continuously.
Transfer the chin chin into a sieve after frying, so the oil can drain before transferring into a wide plate where it will cool for up to three hours, then store in an airtight container so it won’t get soft.
