Easy Homemade Churros

One of the perfect snacks to munch on, that I came across recently are these Churros.
Churros are similar to doughnuts. Strips of dough are fried in oil, rolled in caster sugar and served with warm Chocolate Sauce ( Yummmm, what more can you ask? )

Churros

These Churros are crispy on the outside and unbelievably so soft on the inside. The milk and little butter in this dough adds richness and makes the churros extra special!

And now comes another main hero of this dish - The Chocolate Sauce! You can never ( ever! ) say no to warm churros dipped in hot chocolate sauce. You get the crispness, softness and the chocolate heaven all in one bite. And trust me these get over within seconds!!

NOTES:
1) For pillowy soft churros don't over mix the dough. Over mixing will activate the gluten ( which we don't need ) Mix until it comes together as a ball of dough.
2) The oil should be right temperature. If it is too hot the churros will brown quickly and remain raw inside. If it is too cold, the churros will lose its shape and become distorted.
3) To check whether the oil temperature is correct, pinch a small piece of dough and put it in oil. It should rise slowly to the surface and then brown.
4) Don't crowd the oil while frying, as this will reduce the oil temperature too much.
5) You can even flavour your caster sugar with cinnamon.
