We have something similar to the Mexican Churros, known as Kaamaranga or   as I later found out through a reader Balakshaam . Similar in making , but once the pastry is fried they are soaked in a sugar syrup so they don't  have that lovely crispy texture as Churros.
My boys love Churros but its a bit hard to pipe them out , I always end up bursting the piping bag.  So  the last time I made them , I piped them on a  baking paper, then removed and dropped them into the hot oil.

I found this Churros recipe by Chef Rick Bayless  , its a pretty straight forward recipe and delicious. So I will cut the chit chat and get on with the recipe.

Recipe : Churros ( Rick Bayless Recipe )

1 cup water
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp  oil
pinch salt
1 cup plain flour

2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp freshly ground cinnamon

Fill a sauce pan with water  ,bring  to a boil along with  sugar and oil and pinch of salt.

Add the cup of flour all at once, Switch off heat, and  stir  with a wooden spoon as fast and vigorously as you can  till the dough comes away from the sides of the pan. Let it cool

Once  cool,  spoon it into a piping bag with a large star nozzle. Pipe  on a piece of baking paper , 2-3 inch strips each.

Heat up a pan of oil for deep frying,  gently drop the piped Churros into the hot oil and deep fry in batches till dark golden brown.

Place the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, toss the warm Churros in the cinnamon sugar to coat and remove. Serve with chocolate sauce or hot chocolate.
