Step 1:
To prepare churros, heat water in a pot, add butter and let it melt.

Step 2:
Meanwhile, add flour with salt in a bowl and mix well.

Step 3:
Once the butter has melted, turn off the heat and add the flour mix. Knead with a wooden spoon until a thick batter like dough is formed.

Step 4:
Fill the dough into a piping bag with a star nozzle and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Step 5:
While the dough is chilling, in a heavy bottomed pot, add double cream and bring to a boil on medium heat. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon powder, mix well and reduce the heat to low.

Step 6:
Add dark chocolate to the cream and mix well until the chocolate melts. Remove from heat, transfer into a serving bowl and keep warm.

Step 7:
Heat oil for deep frying in a pan, take out the piping bag and start piping the dough out, around 4 inches long, straight into the oil and cut the end using scissors. Stir the churros occasionally and cook until golden brown.

Step 8:
Repeat the process with all the dough.

Step 9:
Once cooked, drain them on a paper towel, add caster sugar and cinnamon in a plate and coat the churros with cinnamon-sugar mix nicely.

Step 10:
Arrange the coated churros in a serving platter along with warm chocolate sauce and serve immediately.


Vanillla pod can be used in place of vanilla extract. Cinnamon stick is a good substitute for cinnamon powder.
