Churros with Chocolate Sauce ( eggless)

Churros are called Spanish Doughnuts. They are piped into hot oil and fried to a crispy golden brown. They are often served with chocolate sauce.
The first time I heard of this dish was while watching Materchef australia! They indeed do look pretty interesting and tempting.
There are two versions of churros, one uses eggs, the other is without eggs.
I searched the net for a recipe and came across a great recipe on Allrecipes.com. I went through the comments of the recipe and altered the recipe accordingly. I also added a pinch of baking powder to the flour as mentioned in Nigella Lawson’s recipe.
They turned out pretty good. They were crispy and chewy both at the same time. A recipe definitely worth trying!
