Churros & Estadi Olimpic

13 Jun

Churros is a Spanish light sweet Savoury dish available in Spanish cafe’s.  It is usually served during breakfast or dinner. There can be quite a few variations  made in this dish, although the shape of the Churros maintained like ridges.  The variations can be  from  selection of flour( either All purpose flour or Wheat flour) to which oil is used to fry. Finally the savoury can be sprinkled with sugar or served with hot chocolate sauce.

Churros are also available in other countries like Cuba, Brazil ,peru, Chile ,Mexico ,Argentina with slight variations as it filled with caramel, chocolate and vanilla. (Wikipedia)

I used All purpose flour, Canola oil and Sugar for sprinkling. Tastes like doughnut. Soft and slight crispy, should be served warm.

Here is the Recipe

Ingredients:

  1. All purpose flour – 1 cup
  2. Boiling hot water – 1,  3/4 cup
  3. Salt – 1/4 tsp
  4. Baking powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  5. Canola Oil – 200 ml
  6. Sugar – 5 Tbs

Method:

1. Mix the Flour, salt and boiling water in a bowl with the help of spatula to make a dough which is sticky.

2. In a small pan heat the oil. Fill the dough in a pastry bag and using star shaped nostril pipe the dough slowly in to the oil.

3. Fry for approx 5 min by turning to other side or until it becomes golden brown color.

4. Once it is done, sprinkle sugar on top of the Churros as it settles on the ridges.

Estadi Olimpic — Olympic Stadium.

In last few posts, I have been covering the some of the Barcelona attractions. Today’s post is about Barcelona Olympic stadium. For me, the moment I hear or talk about about Barcelona, the first thing that strikes to my mind is this Olympic stadium and the year 1992.  This was during my school days, we used to sit together and watch the games with my family.
