Ingredients
  

  • 2 ounces Chorizo cut into small cubes
  • 1 small Shallot roughly chopped
  • 5 tbsp Unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 1 cup Chicken stock
  • 1 and 1/4 cups Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 Large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 liter Sunflower oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Cook chorizo and chopped shallot in a pan until they’re nice and golden.
  • Add butter and chicken stock to the pan. Let it simmer until the butter melts.
  • Stir in flour, garlic, and salt until you get a smooth dough.
  • Take the pan off the heat and slowly mix in the beaten eggs until everything’s mixed well.
  • Heat oil in a big pot until it’s hot.
  • Put the churro dough into a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle.
  • Squeeze the dough into the hot oil, cutting it into pieces with scissors.
  • Fry until they’re golden and crispy, then take them out and let them drain on paper towels.
  • Serve your savory churros hot with your favorite dipping sauce or just eat them as they are!

Notes

  • Choose good quality chorizo for maximum flavour. It’s the star of the show in these savoury churros, so go for something delicious.
  • When you’re making the dough, take your time to mix everything well. You want a smooth consistency before you start frying.
  • Before you start frying your churros, make sure the oil is hot enough. You can check by dropping a small piece of dough into the oil. If it sizzles and rises to the top quickly, it’s ready.
  • Savory churros are best enjoyed hot and fresh out of the fryer. Serve them immediately with your favorite dipping sauce for the ultimate flavor experience.
