You pronounce Churros as 'Tsjourros'. It is a Spanish delicacy in the form of rings made from fried wheat or potato dough. They are traditionally eaten for breakfast in Spain with a chocolate dip and a cup of coffee to wake up. At the same time they are also delicious as a snack, no matter at what time of the day you serve it to your guests.
The history of Churros
The Churros, also called Spanish donut or Spanish cookies, is centuries old. Several stories are circulating about the origin of this dish. The tasty rings would not originate from Spain but from China and the Portuguese took them to Spain. But the most famous story tells that Churros originally were eaten by shepherds in the field, because they were so easy to prepare. Nowadays they are popular in Latin America, France, Portugal, Morocco, the United States, Australia, and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands.
How to serve Churros
There are two types of Churros in Spain. One variant is thin and round and the other is long and thick as fries (porra). Churros is traditionally eaten with melted thick chocolate, but they are also delicious with cinnamon and sugar. Fry them 2.5 to 3 minutes at 175ºC and serve them immediately, because fresh fried they are at their best. Bring them to taste in any way that your guests like. Need inspiration?
