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.

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.
