Churros con Chocolate

It’s a late post. I remember when I made this churros for first time was in Singapore about a year ago. There was “Pasar Malam” across from our flat in Senja. They sold churros for Singapore Dollars 3.50 (you got 6 small pieces).

“Pasar Malam” in Singapore, food hawkers at pasar malam are required to get a licence from local council to ensure health, cleanliness and to control numbers to avoid traffic congestion. A food handler is required to get a medical checkup and Typhim VI injections, The pasar malam site is allocated by the local council (Wikipedia).

“Pasar Malam” can be also translated as Night Market; mostly food(snacks or comfort food) or cut fruits sold there. Sometimes they also sell Durian.

Anyway, I did not feel like spending that much for small amount I’ll get so I decided to browse for Churros recipe and got lucky cause the next day I got the recipe (thanks to this girl who posted shared video online thru social media.

Tada…. Churros is ready. My hubby likes it and I regretted that I only make small batch of churros cause I did not know how it turned out.
Ohh, by the way you can use Nutella for dipping like I did, too lazy to make chocolate sauce from scratch
