Did you know that churros were named after the churra sheep because the pastry resembled the sheep's horns? Here is a super easy recipe which will make your guests wonder if its home made or not.


  • For the Churros:

    Oil, for deep frying

    1 cup flour

    1 1/2 tsp baking powder

    1 cup water boiled with 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar

    1 cup finely powdered sugar

    2 Tbsp cinnamon powder

    For The Chocolate Sauce:

    4-5 Tbsp milk

    1 Tbsp butter

    25-30 chocolate cubes (I bought bars of readily available milk chocolate)


For the Churros:

In a wok/kadhai heat the oil.

In a plate sift flour with baking powder.

Knead the dough with warm salt-sugar water. Add water gradually and stop when the dough is soft yet stiff.

In a piping bag stuff the dough and squeeze out 7-10 cm long pieces cutting with scissors. Deep fry till golden.

Drain out on a piece of absorbent paper. Immediately roll in sugar and cinnamon. Dust off extra powder.

Serve. You can serve churros with some chocolate sauce or maple syrup.

For The Chocolate Sauce:

Melt the chocolate with the butter in the microwave (20-30 seconds on Medium) or a double boiler (bottom pan with water; chocolate and butter on the upper pan).

Once melted, add milk to make the sauce. Mix them together with a spoon.

Key Ingredients: vegetable oil, all purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, milk, butter, chocolate
