  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup water boiled with 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup finely powdered sugar

How to Make Churros

  1. For the Churros:
  2. In a wok/kadhai heat the oil.
  3. In a plate sift flour with baking powder.
  4. Knead the dough with warm salt-sugar water. Add water gradually and stop when the dough is soft yet stiff.

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