Ingredients to make Churros

  • all purpose flour 1/2 cup
  • sugar 1 and 1/2 tbsp
  • oil 1 tbsp
  • salt 1 pinch
  • water 3/4 cup
  • For coating:
  • Castor sugar 1/4 cup
  • cinnamon powder 1 tsp
  • Chocolate sauce to garnish

How to make Churros

  1. Combine 1 cup of water, sugar, oil and salt in a saucepan, mix it well and bring to boil on a medium flame. This will take approximately 2-3 minutes.
  2. Turn off the flame, add the plain flour and mix it well with the help of a spatula to form a soft dough.
  3. Transfer the mixture onto a plate and keep it aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Knead the dough again for 1 to 2 minutes or till it is smooth. Put the dough in a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe out 50 mm. (2) sized churros on a flat surface.
  5. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry 10-12 churros at a time on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  6. Add the churros into the castor sugar-cinnamon mixture and toss well till they are evenly coated with the mixture from all the sides.
  7. Serve them immediately with chocolate sauce drizzled on top.

My Tip:

At step 5, use a piping bag made of cloth instead of plastic as plastic bag might tear while piping out churros.
