A Churro is an fried choux , eaten with chocolate sauce as dip. Its very popular in Spain, France and Portugal and eaten at any point of day 🙂
All it takes to make Churros is few ingredients always available at your home pantry and 20 minutes!!!
Yes, you heard it right.
Sometime back I was watching TLC, the Lorraine pascale’s “Baking made easy” series. She mentioned in that particular episode which I and my daughter were watching the best Churros that is available in London. And the best part was we had our visa done for London trip. So it was all more exciting for us to know the best places to eat out. We were looking forward to visit Churros Gracia but unfortunately we were not able to locate it. We tried calling up on the number mentioned on site no one picked up the phone as well…..quiet disappointing though.
Never mind, once we were back from our London trip the first thing that I tried out was Churros as my little one was very eager to eat them , because she loves Chocolate!!!
Here we go without much wait ,
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup water
3 Tbsp butter, diced
2 tsp castor sugar
1/4 tsp tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
vegetable oil, for frying
Cinnamon Sugar Coating
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Take a saucepan, on medium heat boil milk, water, butter, sugar and salt. Once it reaches the boil stage turn off the heat and add Vanilla and flour.
You need to be quick at this stage. With wooden spoon mix the flour and wet ingredients until it becomes a smooth paste (no lumps) and all comes together.
If you feel its too dry, add very little butter .The consistency should be like a batter which is not watery and is pipable.
Let cool for few minutes.
Take a piping bag or ziplock bag and pour the batter into it with star nozzle tip to get the texture on churros.
Heat the oil in pan. Keep ready the sugar and cinnamon to dust as the churros come out of pan.
Now pipe directly the batter into the oil pan about 2-3 inches (using clean scissors cut the dough) at a time.
Fry them until golden brown and crisp. Remove and drain out excess oil on paper towels. Then dust with sugar and cinnamon.
Melt any chocolate , I used Lindt hazelnut and used as dip. You could also make chocolate ganache for dip.
Enjoy the snack warm with family and friends.
Thank you for stopping by , hope to hear from you about your experience on making the churros!!!
