Introduction: Churros: Inspired From San Churro Chocolateria

I first had Churros in school as part of a Spanish beginner course. I loved it, and tried it in many places including San Churros. Since restaurants are not always accessible I wanted to try making it at home. I browsed the internet and the various ways of making Churros and the different types of sides. I have combined my favourite sides with Churros to make this home style recipe inspired from San Churros.

    Dear MadhuM24,

    I'm sorry, but this recipe is "tourist churros". Let me explain; if some spaniard read your recipe, one kitty will die in somewhere.

    First of all, in Spain we have two kind of churros: the thinners are churros in the strict sense, they are less than 15mm of diameter; porras are more than this measurement. As you're using the churros machine (churrera), you can change the spout.

    In second place, the original recipe is easiest than yours:

    500 ml bowling water

    500 ml plain flour

    Pinch of salt

    0,4º olive oil or sunflower oil

    Add the salt to the water, when it bowl, add the bowl and remove to get an sticky dough.

    Fill the churrera and eat the oil.

    Then, brown the churros as you said, let it coll down and ENJOY.

    P.S.: I promise I'll publish it with photos as soon as possible. And tell me if you miss any other spanish recipe.

    I'm Sorry.

    But I wrote "when it bowl" instead of "when it boil" and "eat the oil" instead "heat the oil", please, don´t eat the sunflower.

    But you can taste a slice of bread covered with extra virgin olive oil and salt, it´s fantastic and healthy.

    They look very good, but they are not churros, they are Porras.
    The churros are thinner and have a drop shape.

    Sorry if my english is not so good.
    I'm from Valencia (Spain)
