Dough Cutters For Chinchin by snazzydawn(f): 8:43pm On Apr 24, 2011
Hello y'all, please I'm about to start making chinchin on a large scale in addition to my cakes. Now I know it'll be slow to cut up the chinchin in pieces using human hands. Is there a machine that flattens and cuts it before the frying? Where can I get it,please? Thank you.

Are you in Nigeria? If you are in Nigeria, check out those who make large scale chin-chin. I live in Atlanta, i needed a chin chin cutter sometime last year August. I bought a ravioli/pasta machine from ltaly. i must confess, it didnt work out. i tried several times it didnt work, so i returned the machine. My cousins who makes chin chin in Atlanta use knives to cut the pastry. I am notsure we have chin chin cutter here in America.

^Did you try a regular kitchenaid food processor? Some of them come with pasta shaping attachments. Not sure why you ordered one all the way from Italy when you live in the US.

Anyway, you may be right sha but i think cutting it by hand would be quite tedious when making it for a large party.

Initially i bought kitchen aid pasta roller/cutter, it didnt work. Then after sourcing on the web, i decided to try a Ravioli cutter, before i finally gave up. My two cousins make chin chin to order here in Atlanta, and they use knives. What i discovered about all the cutters is that, the pastry got to be hard, and you know when pastry is too hard, you will not have a good crisp chinchin. Some other person may have a better idea.

use pasta cutter. There was this one my mom had we used it to cut dough for chinchin and I bought one two years ago I use it to flaten dough to make spring rolls. It wont cut the chin chin into squares but it will cut the dough into long strips and then you cut to the square size you want.
