Spain won their first world cup and am very happy for them eventhough am not a great fan of Spain...Yesterday while everyone gets ready to watch out the final match, i prepared this Spanish fritters to munch while watching the match..Churros, sometimes referred as a Spanish doughnut or else fried dough pastry based snack..These churros originated in Spain and they are also popular in Latin America, France, Portugal, Morocco, the United States, Australia, and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands. There are two types of churros in Spain. One is thin and usually knotted while the other one especially popular in Madrid, is long and thick. They both are normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate or for snacks springled with sugar.Churros are typically fried until they become crunchy, and then are sprinkled with sugar. The surface of a churro is ridged due to having been piped from a churrera, a syringe with a star-shaped nozzle. Churros are generally shaped as straight, curled or spirally twisted.
Like pretzels, churros are often sold by street vendors, who often will fry them freshly on the street stand and sell them hot. In Spain, Mexico, and Argentina, they are available in cafes for breakfast, although they may be eaten throughout the day. Oten eaten while warm and sprinkled with sugar or drizzled with honey,they are quick and easy to make.For making my churros, i used the pastry bag with star nozzle and i piped directly these churros directly in hot oil, we enjoyed having this incredible fried doughnuts simply sprinkled with sugar, next time am gonna prepare a chocolate sauce to enjoy along with...
1cup All purpose flour
1/4tsp Baking powder
Oil of deep frying
Sugar to sprinkle
Mix the flour and baking powder, keep aside..Heat the water with oil and salt, bring them boil..immediately add the flour mixture and stir until its turns as a dough, take care that the dough shouldnt be watery..take enough dough in a pastry bag with star nozzle..Meanwhile heat the oil for deep frying, once the oil is hot squeeze out the dough in the hot oil either as long strips or curled strips..Fry until they turns golden brown..
Roll the fried churros in sugar or springle enough sugar over the fried churros..Enjoy warm..
