I made one of my favourite snacks, Churro, today. I wished it was commonly available.
I don't really enjoy making it because it's so difficult to squeeze out hot dough. :( Always remember to wrap a cloth around the piping bag when you are doing it to avoid being burned.
I used some remaining dough that was too difficult to pipe out and make them into balls. We all love those as it's was a lot more easier to eat. One ball each mouth!
These churros are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Can't stop at one!
- 250ml Water
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 125g All-Purpose Flour, sifted
- 2 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Oil
- Oil for frying
How to do it:
- Put flour in a heatproof bowl and set aside.
- Combine water, sugar, salt and oil in a saucepan.
- Bring it to a boil.
- Pour it over the flour.
- Stir till a smooth dough is formed and it separates from the sides of the bowl.
- Spoon the dough into a pastry bag with a large star tip.
- Pipe into hot oil.
- Alternatively, pipe on baking paper.
- Drop the piped dough with the baking paper into the oil then remove the paper.
- Deep fry till they float up on the oil and turns golden brown.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Coat with Cinnamon sugar or serve with melted chocolate.
- I melt some semi-bitter chocolate bits with some fresh milk using steam bath method. I didn't weigh the chocolate chips as I just used what I thought is enough. It's about 5 tablespoon of chocolate bit and 1 tablespoon milk to thin it.
- The mixing of Cinnamon Sugar as based on estimation too. More sugar and less Cinnamon powder. Adjust according to your taste.
