Churro is a popular street food in Spanish/ Mexican that is made from a flour dough and by deep frying it. The dough itself is using a choux pastry dough and only takes you less than 15 mins to make it. Churros are usually coated with cinnamon sugar and served along with a chocolate dip. Pastry can be premade in advance and fry as when you feel like having it!
