Introduction: Crispy Churros

Picture of Crispy Churros

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.. :)

gridha (author)2014-02-22


je n'ai pa reussi ces churros

il semble que quelque chose manque à la recette

la pate reste fileuse et les batonnets une fois cuits sont durs et plats

doit on reviser les doses ou cuire carement la pate



faiza007 (author)gridha2014-02-23

CustardInc (author)2014-02-09

Just made these, great recipe :) for anyone wondering what temperature to do these at, I would suggest below 180 Celsius. I was unsure, so I looked at another recipe which said 190, after giving it a go they browned on the outside and left the inside raw. Thanks again for the recipe!

FirstSpear (author)2014-02-06

Lived in Spain for 8 years (am UK born and raised). Loved these. Have bookmarked this page. The chocolate that comes with these is as thick as axle grease. AND, stupidly, in Spain, these are an evening dish. We got turned away from restaurants that we visited in the afternoons. Duh.

Cheers for the method.

faiza007 (author)FirstSpear2014-02-06

oh..thank you so much..!! :)
also the actual churros are larger in size..
and now you can make your own..haha :D

Hardwired22 (author)2014-02-02
