Get perfectly crispy churros with our fool-proof tips.
Churros is a crunchy, delicious snack that comes from the Spanish and Portuguese cuisines. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, this scrumptious snack is undoubtedly one of the best treats for any party. Churros are generally prism-shaped, but these can also be straight, curly and spiral. They are fried until they turn crispy and then rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture for an extra touch of flavours. Well, you don’t need an excuse to grab a crispy bite of churros. So, make them at home this weekend by following these steps:
Whip Up A Thick Batter
Ingredients like butter, flour, water, salt and eggs are used for making a batter. Use these ingredients and whip up a batter using a spatula for whisking. You can also use an electric beater instead.
Gently Pipe The Dough Into Oil
The basic tool you need for making churros is a piping bag. Fill the dough inside a piping bag with a sharp nozzle. Gently pipe the dough into oil by making long strips. Be slow and careful while frying, otherwise the dough will spatter and you won’t get the desired shape and size of your homemade churros.
Fry Until Golden
Fry the churros in any oil but make sure to do so until they turn crunchy from all the sides. It’s always better to fry the churros in small batches to get evenly cooked churros. Frying in batches prevents the old temperature from dropping low. If you want, you can also bake them but they might not be as crispy as fried ones.
Sprinkle Cinnamon Sugar On Top
At last sprinkling cinnamon sugar on top of churros is something you simply can’t miss. Take a plate or bowl and create a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Use this mixture to sprinkle over the top.
