1. How to make coconut chips: the ingredients for Gurundi

  • 1 big coconut;
  • 80 grams cassava starch (or tapioca) (you can use potato or corn starch as a substitute);
  • Half cup (or 50-60 grams) of sugar;
  • A pinch of nutmeg.

Note: many fans of Nigerian snack swear that they have used plain flour in this recipe – maybe you’ll go for an experiment and tell us about the results in the comments?!

2. How to make Nigerian coconut chips: the preparation process

  • Open the coconut with a small sharp knife; get out the meat and blend or grate it to a good mix.
  • Mix the starch, the coconut, the nutmeg and sugar in a bowl. Once again – mix it thoroughly!

  • Add a bit water to the mix and form a ball from the dough.

  • Flatten the dough thinly and put it on a baking tray with baking sheets (or you can grease it with butter if you like).

  • Cut the dough into six big (6 cm) squares-form parts, preheat oven to 302 F (150 C) and bake them for 20 minutes.
  • When your biscuits become brown and a bit hardened, take it out and cool.
  • As the biscuits cool, they will become harder. You can serve the snacks right away or store them in an airtight container to enjoy them later.

As you can see, the process of preparing coconut chips is quite cheap and easy. Therefore, you can freely start your own coconut chips business in Nigeria with a little investment and, of course, if you have a stable supply of coconuts!

It is also a perfect good business opportunity because Nigerians just love snacks and always come around to buy them, so you can rent a stall by the roadside in order to attract more customers and make more money.

Moreover, it is still a virgin area that many people have not explored. So welcome to the first rows!
