The secret to churros is in the making of the dough. You might need a few goes to get it right but as the raw ingredients are cheap and readily available — just flour and water — the practice is affordable. The objective is to make dough that is firm, smooth and sticky. You can buy the churrería, the thick plastic tube with a screw that extrudes the dough, in good food shops and Spanish stores. You can also use a star nozzle on a piping bag, but this requires a lot of muscle power.
