My love affair with churros started a few months ago, when i learnt its recipe from a TLC cookery show.. :) i made a small batch for testing and they turned out so good..that i couldn't resist myself from making more churros..
Churros are simple fritters which look like a fat french fry.. :P
They are the Spanish equivalent of doughnuts, sold at cafes and at street vendor's carts.
In India a similar version of churro is popularly known as *Shakar pare* which means sugary bites.
A churro isn't a churro without a cinnamon sugar shower.. :D
serve them warm with chocolate sauce or honey or whipped cream..
I hope you like it.. :)
