churrosThe churros are a dough of flour and others ingredients fried in oil.
Their shape can be straight or as a snare; they can be filled with chocolate, cream or spreaded milk. They usually eat for breakfast or snack, with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee with milk.
A variety of churros is the porra, which differs from churros to have in its ingredients: a pinch of baking soda; a time of rest for the dough and more water than the churros. The porra gets directly into the pan with hot oil, forming a spiral that rosca, while for the churro it uses a tool called churrera, that gives the shape of a stick or twist. Frying porras requires a few minutes more than the churros because the dough is more double than the churros; after that it cuts into pieces with scissors or a knife.
