IN a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and blend thoroughly. Add half the milk and half the pumpkin and mix, repeat. Fold in the chocolate chips. spoon the batter into the muffin tins, about 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until springy and brown or until a cake tester comes out clean.
