  2. sugar 1 and 1/2 tbsp
  3. oil 1 tbsp
  4. salt 1 pinch
  5. water 3/4 cup
  6. For coating:

  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.
