Churros are a crunchy snack, prepared by deep-frying stick-shaped pieces of sweetened dough. Churros have a unique, crunchy texture because the plain flour is sweetened with an oily sugar syrup. On deep-frying, this gives the Churros a beautiful texture. When coated with a sweet cinnamon mixture, the Churros become just too heavenly to bite into. Churros with chocolate sauce is a favourite snack in many parts of the world like Spain, France and parts of America, where it is sometimes even served for breakfast.
- Combine 1¼ cups of water, sugar, oil and salt in a saucepan, mix well and bring to boil on a medium flame. This will take approx. 2 to 3 minutes.
- Switch off the flame, add the plain flour and mix well with the help of a spatula to form a soft dough.
- Transfer the mixture onto a plate and keep aside to cool for 5 minutes.
- Knead the dough again for 1 to 2 minutes or till it is smooth.
- Put the dough in piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe out 50 mm. (2”) sized churros on a flat surface.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry 10 to 12 churros at a time on a medium flame till golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Add the churros into the castor sugar-cinnamon mixture and toss well till they are evenly coated with the mixture from all the sides.
- Serve immediately with chocolate sauce.
- At step 5, use a piping bag made of cloth instead of plastic as plastic bag might tear while piping out churros.
