Easy Churros Recipe

Churros are by no means a traditional Pakistani food, but they are quite similar to Balushahi which we will share a recipe for soon. Try them out as a fun iftar snack.


Water – 1 cup (250ml)

Unsalted butter, diced into small cubes – 1/4 cup (56g)

Granulated sugar – 1 Tbsp (13g) 

Salt – 1/4 tsp 

All-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure) – 1 cup (141g) 

Egg – 2 large 

Vegetable oil, for frying – 1 litre 

For coating

1/2 cup (100g) powdered sugar

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a small dish, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to make the coating.
  2. A large saucepan or deep skillet should have about 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil heated to 360 degrees Fahrenheit over medium-high heat. Create the batter while the oil is heating. Once oil hits 360 degrees, lower burner temperature as necessary to maintain that temperature.
  3. To prepare churros, combine water, butter, and sugar in a big skillet over medium heat. adding vanilla after bringing to a boil. Add flour and salt after turning the heat off. Stir with a wooden spoon for 30 seconds or until thickened. Give the mixture 10 minutes to cool. 
  4. Using a hand mixer, whip each egg into the cooled mixture until incorporated. Mixture should be transferred to a piping bag with a big open star tip.
  5. Pipe the mixture into the heated oil in lengths of about 6 inches, cutting the ends with a pair of clean scissors.
  6. Fry for around two minutes per side, or until golden brown. After gently drying on paper towels, transfer to the powdered sugar mixture and roll to coat.
