Churros

Another dish off my bucket list.

Churros is a fried dough pastry, predominantly made in Spain, Portugal, France and the Philippines. And my son’s favourite pastry.

Having been meaning to make this one for a long time now. Father’s day was an occasion to try something yummy and new.

Ingredients:

1) 1 cup water

2) 2 1/2 tbsp sugar

3) 2 tbsp oil

4) 1/2 tsp salt

5) 1 cup maida/ all purpose flour

For the sugar coating:

1) 2tbsp fine sugar or powdered sugar

2) 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

Oil for deep frying

Method:

1) Boil the water, sugar, salt and oil.

2) Switch off the fire and add the flour.

3) Take a piping bag with a nozzle and pipe the dough.

4) Take oil in a pan and when the oil is hot simmer the flame and fry the churros on low fire. This will help it brown evenly and also cook well from inside out.

Remove from oil leave on kitchen paper or tissue paper for a few seconds.

Dust with sugar and cinnamon powder.

I also tried making the churro ice cream. Try them when the churros are warm as they melt well.

My trial was a success!
