1 cup flour
¹/² teaspoon salt
2¹/² tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter
Veg oil for frying
Chocolate for serving
Step 1: In a saucepan, bring milk, sugar, salt, and butter to a boil. Once boiled, remove from heat and promptly add the flour. Mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms, being careful not to overmix.
Step 2: Transfer the dough to a piping bag equipped with a large star nozzle. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan with a sturdy bottom. Carefully pipe strips of dough over the hot oil and cut them with scissors. Fry until they attain a golden brown color.
Step 3: After frying, drain the churros on tissue paper and roll them in castor sugar. Serve with chocolate.
Avoid overmixing the dough for soft churros.
Ensure the oil is at the correct temperature; too hot will brown quickly and remain raw inside, and too cold will distort the shape.
Optionally, flavor castor sugar with cinnamon.
Avoid overcrowding the oil while frying to maintain the temperature.
To check the oil temperature, pinch a small piece of dough and place it in the oil; it should rise slowly and then brown.
Enjoy your delightful churros! ❤️
