Ghana Chin Chin (Chips) – widely popular fried pastry chips in West Africa with a Ghana twist featuring strong notes of onions, garlic and a little bite from the white pepper. If you’re a sweet tooth like me, add a hint of sugar for an extra tasty and addictive chin-chin.

Yields5 Servings
Prep Time35 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time55 mins
 1 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp white pepper
 ½ cup butter
 3 garlic cloves minced
  cup grated onion
 1 large egg
 ½ cup (125ml) milk plus more about 2 tablespoons
 2 tbsp sugar optional
 Oil for frying
Instructions
 1. Using a mixer or by hand mix the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, nutmeg and white pepper
 2. Add the butter to the flour and mix well until the butter is well incorporated with the flour.
 3. Add minced garlic, onions, milk and egg into the mixture. Keep mixing until you have formed a sticky dough ball
 4. Dump the dough ball onto a floured surface and knead, incorporating more flour into the dough as needed, until the dough is smooth, elastic, and even in color and no longer sticky. Chin-chin can be cut into many shapes and sizes
 5. Divide dough in half. On a floured board roll each half about 1/6 inches thick. Just like linguine or fettuccine. You can make it easy by using a pasta machine if you have one available. Make shapes as desired.
 6. Add oil (about 3 inches deep) to a heated skillet/sauce pan or my all time favorite Dutch oven that is over medium heat and bring it to 350 degrees.
 7. Fry in hot oil until golden. Remove from oil, drain, and serve. You can store this in an airtight container for up to a month.
