Isn’t that what heart craves for? A few loved ones and a comfortable home where we can just be ourselves? I know I do. But when the weather is playing cupid, my heart also longs for all things sinful. Yes, come monsoon almost all of us crave for piping hot and spicy snacks. Make no mistake I fall in the same category. In fact, garlic aubergine fritters and beer battered onion rings become my raison d’etre. However, every once in a while the inner child in me craves for sweet things. Well that, and the fact that D dictates the snacks at our home.
This particular weekend we had friends visiting us and as is my nature I wanted to treat them to a lavish spread. But the best thing about friends ?? They know when you are dog tired and seriously couldn’t care less if all you served was a simple grilled cheese. Of course , given that caprese sandwich is one of my favorite breakfasts I can hardly turn up my nose. But it does feel extremely endearing to have friends who know the mental and physical exhaustion hosting two back to back pop up dinners had on me. They made me promise not to go into any trouble. So I said bbye to my pie obsession and instead gave in to D’s demands and decided to whip up these quick and easy churros with chocolate sauce.
These quick and easy churros with chocolate sauce are a perfect answer to all your rainy day cravings. Deep fried dough thats been rolled in cinnamon sugar.

It takes barely 30 mins to make and needs pantry staples. Need something easier??

To make things even more festive and guest worthy, I served these quick and easy churros with chocolate sauce in my favorite wooden serveware from Cyahi. Cyahi is one of my favorite home and lifestyle brands in India. Their products are of excellent quality, perfect finish and they boast of some of the coolest designs in the Indian market today. Whether you go for ceramic plates, bone china dinner ware, classy and rustic wooden platters like me or even the gorgeous printed trays, there is something for everyone here. I find myself veering again and again towards wooden serveware that looks as elegant as Cyahi’s. I love the loaf platter and the gemini platter the most! They are so versatile. If you are looking for something smaller, their salad bowls are just perfect as is the Highway platter for appetizers and snacks. Take a look at Cyahi and feel wowed.
My guests were in love with the quick and easy churros with chocolate sauce and dulce de leche. But after the food was over, they couldn’t stop drooling over these wooden serveware from Cyahi.

Heat the butter, water and sugar in a non stick pan till it reaches a rolling boil. Once it is boiling, add the flour and salt and mix vigorously. Keep stirring the flour with a wooden spoon till it comes together and forms a ball.
Once the dough becomes a ball, remove from heat. It usually takes 3-4 mins for the dough to become a ball.

Now fit a piping bad with a star shaped nozzle and fill it the batter.
Heat a deep caldron with oil till it reaches 170C.
While the oil is heating make the dusting sugar by mixing the ingredients on a large plate.
To fry the churros
Once the oil is hot, carefully pipe 10-15 cm of batter into the oil. Use a scissor to cut it off at the nozzle. Repeat for 5-6 more per batch. Dont over crowd the oil. Fry for 2 mins per side on medium flame. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on tissue for a bit.
Then roll the churros in the dusting sugar till well coated.
Serve hot with chocolate sauce and dulce de leche if desired.
For the chocolate sauce:
Chop the chocolate into tiny pieces. Heat the cream till just before boiling. Add the cream and butter to the bowl with chocolate. Let sit for 3 mins. Then mix well till chocolate is completely melted. Keep warm in the oven till serving. Or microwave on 10 sec spurts to melt it again. (Be sure to keep an eye when microwaving. chocolate can burn easily!)
