Churros /Eggless Churros with Chocolate Sauce



Last day of BM#50 and according to the theme I decided to make the fried dough foods.When I was going through the list Churros got my attention since it was in my to do list so long.
I had churros,couple of times in Carnival and liked it a lot,its a quiet addictive snack.
According to Wiki,Churro is a thin cylindrical,fried dough pastry snack.Churros are popular in Spain,Mexico and USA,they are normally dipped in a chocolate sauce and served.
In some parts of Spain its often served as for breakfast and even the size,shape also differs.
The method of making  Churros resembles the South Indian murukku,whereas the cooked dough is squeezed in the hot oil and fried.Then the fried churros are dusted with either powdered or granulated sugar.
Coming to the recipe,I followed a recipe in You tube and it came out pretty good.Normally a piping bag is used to squeeze the dough.Somehow I was not comfortable with the piping bag,used my murukku maker with the star blade.Lets move on to the recipe..................................................
