This sugar-sprinkled fried pastry can be found at roadside kiosks worldwide or on the menus of restaurants. However, they aren’t only meant to be eaten just on the roadsides, but over breakfast too dipped either in hot chocolate or paired with café con leche (coffee with milk). Some food historians believe churros were invented by Spanish sheperds who, in the mountains didn’t have access to bakeries so they created churros which were fried over fire. This version of this snack’s origins also points to a breed of sheep, the ‘Navajo-Churro’, which descend from the ‘Churra’ sheep of the Iberian Peninsula. The shape of the churros is what resembles the horns of the sheep. According to another version, it were Portuguese sailors who came across a similar snack in Northern China, called ‘You Tiao’, which translates to ‘oil-fried devil’. It was this recipe that was then learnt by the Spanish neighbours who left their mark to it – passing the dough through a star-shaped tip which gives the churro its classic ridges. Whoever is the real creator of this dish, it were the conquistadors who introduced the snack in Latin America. From then on, different versions of churros are available to the public. Cubans have guava-filled churros while dulce de leche-filled ones are popular in Mexico, to cheese-filled churros available in Uruguay. Be it out of a greasy paper bag, dusted with cinnamon or sugar, dipped in chocolate sauce or in either of the shapes – straight or spiral – churros are equally relished in summers as well as winters.
