QUIRKY BAKED WHOLE WHEAT ACHOMO (CHIN CHIN)

  Achomo is a popular snack in West Africa. In Ghana, it is referred to as achomo/atsomo and in Nigeria it is referred to as chin chin. This snack is definitely addictive but due to its rich, deep fried nature it’s not the best in terms of health. This is why I made some small […]
