- In a separate small bowl, Whisk your egg till it is frothy, add your vanilla and coconut milk.
- In the bowl with the dry ingredients, make a well in the centre and slowly add your egg mix, combining the flour with the mix as you add it.
- Mix the entire dough till its no longer sticky and everything is combined then cover the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30-45 minutes.
- Sprinkle some flour on the surface you would use to roll out the chin-chin dough.
- Cut a small chunk of the dough and with a rolling pin, roll out the chin-chin dough. If you want larger chin-chin chunks, do not roll it out so thin, If you want regular sized chin-chin, roll it out so it’s relatively thin but not all the way.
- With a knife, cut the chin-chin to your desired shape and set it aside.
- In a pan of hot oil for deep frying, place your chin-chin dough and allow to fry till it’s golden brown. Place in a paper towel to allow the excess oil to be absorbed and for it to cool down.
- If using an oven, pre-heat the oven to 370 F and place the chin-chin dough on a lined foil container and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until browned.
Your soft chin-chin is ready! Serve warm and you can sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top.
