She is kind
She is strong
She holds the strength to fight against wrong
She is innocent
Yet she is smart
To play her part
She can give birth to life
Yet so sober and pragmatic
She doesn’t believe in giving up
She is always emphatic
She is beyond words
She is appreciated less though deserves much more
She is full of life
She is immortal, she is pure
She is full of love
She is full of power
Who is she ?
She is a women
Who has it all………..
“Weldone Parul… love your little poem.. It is so deep.. proud of you bestie!!! :)” Thanks Sakshi…. Hello foodie friends 🙂 Hope you all like it too.. my little effort 🙂 This post undoubtedly goes to all the lovely ladies out there and all the men who love their ladies and want to make them feel special today 😉 Wish you all a very Happy Women’s Day.
Foodie friends as usual caught up with little tight schedules Sakshi and I were trying to figure out what to put for this Women’s Day. When just two days back at my spanish class we were talking about food. From verduraz to pan to frutos to tea time. And thats when we read about Churros in a sentence. My spanish teacher – Professor Carlos as we call him 🙂 was over whelmed and could not stop himself without expressing his love for churros. As to tell some with a blank face that what churros really are , he googled the pics and showed. I too told him that I simply love them and that do make them at home 🙂 He was glad that there was someone who knew and could connect with churros 🙂 And as you know now he is behind the fact that my spanish is getting better day by day 🙂 Have to say ” El es muy dulce y un muy buen profesor :)”
And then what, the very next moment when the class got busy with next lesson my mind was running some where else 🙂 My foodie instinct was wondering of how about putting churros for a special day like this 🙂 Thinking of making churros also took me back in time. My first experience of making these yummy treats at home was with my Sister in law 🙂 I still remember how we were chatting about food which led us to the idea of trying something new 🙂 That very moment she got up in excitement and suggested of making churros. We both started preparing the batter and in no time these yummy addictive treats were made. They turned out too good and delicious. They were loved by all so much that we ended up making one more set of the batter 🙂
Remembering this made the decision of posting churros pretty firm 🙂 And so here we are with our Womens day special chit chat over a cup of tea or coffee with Churros 🙂
A churro, sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, is a fried-dough pastry—predominantly choux—based snack. Churros are popular in Spain, France, the Philippines, Portugal, Latin America (including Brazil and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands) and the United States. There are two types of churros in Spain, one which is thin (and sometimes knotted) and the other which is long and thick (porra). They are both normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate or café con leche 🙂
Of course a churro isn’t a churro without a cinnamon-sugar shower. But one cannot even stop there. The crispy batons beg to be dipped and dunked, so we have included a quick-fix recipe for warm chocolate dipping sauce 🙂 Dip once, dip twice, or dip three times till they leave you satiated 🙂
Churros are the Spanish equivalent of doughnuts, sold at cafes and at street vendor’s carts. Instead of a ring shape, like a doughnut, churros are long, straight or slightly curled lengths that have ridges. Eaten while warm, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon or drizzled with honey. They are quick and easy to make. And so they suit best for today. All lovely ladies can quickly make them and enjoy with fellow friends 🙂 These are super quick and easy to make, so all the mens who want to pamper their ladies and make them feel special can quickly get into the kitchen wrap up in no time and surprise their women strength at home 🙂 Trust us the priceless smile on your lovely ladies faces will surely make your day too.
Don’t just wait up start preparing 🙂
Boil the water. Stir in the salt, cinnamon and the baking soda. Sift the flour and add it all at once to the boiling water. Mix it quickly with a wooden spoon. Cover and let cool.
Preheat oil for frying. Put the batter into a cloth funnel (a pastry tube) with a small opening at the end. Exerting a firm and steady pressure, pipe the batter into the oil to form about 6 in(15cm) pieces. Fry until golden. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Serve hot with Spanish hot chocolate.
This batter makes a dozen of them so Enjoy!!!
Place the chopped chocolate in small saucepan.(Do not let it boil.) Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for one minute then stir to combine.
Enjoy these yummy treats with friends and family. Nothing better than men making it for their ladies 🙂 Have a great day. Let the Women Power celebrate for now and for ever 🙂 God bless 🙂
