Classic Churros with a Chili Chocolate Sauce

For those of you who’ve been following my social media feeds know about my fondness for dessert. It’s reached that point, where I actually pick restaurants to eat at on the basis of their dessert menu. My love for sugar-coated food extends to the kitchen and whenever a sweet craving hits I always find ingredients to put together to satiate the craving. Experimenting with confectionary ingredients in the kitchen and creating pretty looking delicious dessert has always been my favorite hobby. But, when I’m in that flow of trying out new things I always end up making a mess in the kitchen.

Handling camera equipment and preparing experimental dishes is not as easy as it looks. The behind the scenes can turn out to be a bit of a disaster. Like for these churros with a chili chocolate sauce that I made, I had to go through batches and batches to get the recipe perfect. Proportions are the most important thing when making this dish, if it goes wrong it can be disastrous. My favorite apron got stained in the process too but fortunately I washed it right away with Ariel Liquids(https://www.ariel.in/en-in/shop/by-type/washing-liquid/ariel-matic-concentrated-liquid?utm_source=SaloniKukreja&utm_medium=Referral&utm_campaign=StainReadyWithAriel) and it came out clean with zero stains. The best part, it kept the colors intact so it made the apron look as good as new.( https://www.ariel.in/en-in/how-to-wash/stain-removal?utm_source=SaloniKukreja&utm_medium=Referral&utm_campaign=StainReadyWithAriel)

So, without further ado here is the recipe for the delicious churros+chocolate sauce:
