Churro is a dough based on flour cooked in oil. Its essential ingredients are water, wheat flour, oil, and salt, and its shape can be straight, in the form of a cane, in ties, spirals, or even in circles, and often they are filled or filled with sugar.
In Colombia, they usually eat alone and are covered with sugar. People eat them hot and freshly made, in a circle. Although in some places they can also be found linearly, their size varies, and they can be filled or not (their general filling is with arequipe or sandwich).
I wanted to bring you this recipe because it is straightforward to make, my aunt taught me the recipe many years ago, since I was little I love churros. I still enjoy eating them.

But there wasn’t always money to buy, so my aunt pleased me with some homemade churros for her. I enjoyed the last churro she ate.

- 250 g of wheat flour. 1 cup.
- 250 g of water. 1 cup.
- 1 teaspoon salt

- When the oil is hot, fry the churros over medium heat so that they will not be raw inside, nor will they burn very lightly.
- Once fried, remove them to a tray with paper towels to absorb excess oil
- Serve them sprinkled with sugar, and if you wish, you can combine it with cinnamon.
