Saturday.  Salad for lunch.  Tea time.  Mouths itching for more food.

I think one of the best chill-out foods has to be churros!  It's crispy, sweet.. and just so easy to eat.  We can't find churros easily in Singapore, so how else to get them but to make them on our own!  They are sort of like doughnuts, but only crispier because of the star-shaped ridges.   *crunch crunch crunch*

So here we are on a Saturday afternoon, feeding ourselves with bites of golden crispy goodness!  Almost instant happy food!

125g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp olive oil
250ml boiling water
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
vegetable oil for deep frying

- Mix flour, baking powder, salt and olive oil in one big bowl.  Pour the boiling water into the bowl and mix well till a thick paste/dough is formed
- Place the dough into a piping bag fixed with a star shaped nozzle
- Pour the vegetable oil into a large sturdy frying pan and place over high heat.  Use a small piece of bread as a guide, when dropped into the oil, if it rises to the top and turns crisp and golden, the oil is hot enough for frying
- Gently pipe the dough into the hot oil, use a scissors to snip off the end of each dough/churro as it comes out from the nozzle
- Reduce the heat to medium-low and fry for 5-8 mins each side until golden and puffed up
- Remove with slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper
- Combine sugar and cinnamon powder on a plate, roll the churros in the sugar and cinnamon powder to coat
