Serves: 40-50 Bites
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 2.5 Tbsp white granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • Oil for frying
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
Instructions
  1. In a pot, add water, sugar, salt and olive oil. Bring it to a boil by stirring until all sugar dissolves. Take it off heat and add flour. Using a spoon mix until it forms a dough ball.
  2. Fill a zip lock bag halfway with this dough. Squeeze so it all comes towards one side. Make a small cut on one of the corners using scissors.
  3. In a deep pot, heat oil. You know oil is hot enough, when you add a tinsy bit of dough and it sizzles. Lower the gas and drop in pieces of dough, squeezing the bag and cutting at every half an inch or so using scissor. Let it fall into hot oil. You can add 7-8 at a time. Stir it using a stainless steel spatula. Let them fry on low-medium heat for good 6-7 minutes or until golden. Keep moving them time to time to prevent over browning or getting burnt.
  4. In a plate, mix sugar and cinnamon to make cinnamon sugar. Take out the churros directly onto the plate with cinnamon sugar and move them around so they get evenly coated.
