churros Churros


Churros or the Spanish doughnut is a deep fried dough pastry served with hot chocolate or café con leche. A popular snack or breakfast item in Spain, France, Portugal, United States, Philippines and Latin America, it is usually sold by street vendors (churrerías) where it is sold freshly made and hot but due to its popularity it is now widely available in cafes and specialty shops. H

History of this dish is somehow divided and there are two claims on how it started, some said it was brought over by the Portuguese from the culinary techniques learned from Southern China where they tried to modify a dough for You tiao by introducing a star design and instead of “pulling” the dough it is extruded out through a star-shaped die. Another story says that it was made by Spanish shepherds as a way to substitute for fresh bakery goods as the method of preparing churros is easy and can be easily cooked in an open fire in the mountains where shepherds spend most of their time.

A really good snack or breakfast item and if you find that this is as easy as a pancake I bet you would change your morning menus.
