I first encounter these in Gold Coast Australia, quite famous there. Originated from Spain and popular every where in the world. Great for tea especially over a cup of coffee or cappucino. For those who haven't tasted these before..you should try. There's one cafe in One Utama serve these. I love this so much. Best eaten while it's hot.
A churro, sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, is a fried-dough pastry-based snack. Churros are popular in Spain, Latin America, France, Portugal, the United States, and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands. There are two types of churros in Spain, one which is thin (and sometimes knotted) and the other which is long and thick (porra). They are both normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate.
I made these for my birthday. Churros are typically fried until they become crunchy, and may be sprinkled with sugar. The surface of a churro is ridged due to having been piped from a churrera, a syringe with a star-shaped nozzle. Churros are generally prisms in shape, and may be straight, curled or spirally twisted. You can also use a pipping bag. The dough and the making of churros is similar with cream puff.
