Everyone knows what is Churro, by the look and taste. Do you know the history of Churro? Most people call it 西班牙油条 in Chinese, sounds like it's originated from Spain. Although the origin of Churro is still unclear, but I find this 'history' of Churro quite interesting...
~ The origin of churros is unclear. One theory is they were brought to Europe from China by the Portuguese. The Portuguese sailed for the Orient and, as they returned from Ming Dynasty China to Portugal, they brought along with them new culinary techniques, including modifying the dough for youtiao, also known as Youzagwei in southern China, for Portugal. However, they modified it by introducing a star design because they did not learn the skill of "pulling" the dough (the Chinese Emperor made it a capital crime to share knowledge with foreigners). As a result, churros are not "pulled" but rather extruded out through a star-shaped die. ~ Source: Wikipedia
Now, in this blog post, I'm going to share the deep fried version of my churros. The mini bite size churros that I customised for the young ones. I made these for my 7yo son to snack on without making much mess at home. You probably can't imagine how much cinnamon sugar my poodle had as a treat from the floor when my son eat the regular size churros. Try this idea if you have young children at home.
|Look at this cute little churro, ohh dear....I want to pop it into my mouth right away! :P|
