coffee with cinnamon churros and chocolate dip.

Churros. Saw it first on some television channel. As someone dunked that long brown stick of fried something into a frothy cup of latte, I tasted it for the first time virtually sitting here in Cochin. Till date the churros I have had is what I have made. Trust me. I loved them, so did my loyal tasting crew.

1 cup water
1/4th cup canola oil
½ tsp salt
1 1/4th cup flour
2 eggs
1 tbsp butter
canola oil for deep drying
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp ground cinnamon

that’s it. recipe? really? will you try it? am happy that you asked, whether you try it or not! so here goes.

sun fell in love with the sea. salt was born.

born of the purest of parents, salt is the prime taste that our tongue distinguishes. Indian cuisine predominantly rides on this excess salt, in all our curries and gravies, to make them appealing to the taste buds. while we all know sea salt aka ‘kalluppu’ is the best among the lot, the free flowing table salt had our brains and minds washed squeaky white in its brilliance ages back. so why this whole salt gyan now? reason is, one of the most trending food topics in the world right now is salt. and the gyan is not on salt but on gourmet salts. so wake up. and smell your salt. is it smoky? is it flaky? is it rosemary ish? or is it from Bali? there is much more to your salt connoisseur, smack on.
