In a dish collect flour, coriander powder, ajwain, kasuri methi, crushed black pepper, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and sugar.

Heat 1&1/2 cup of water and 1/4th cup of ghee in a pan.

Bring to boil and simmer.

Put the flour mixture to the hot ghee mixed water.

Switch off the flame and stir vigorously.

Continue to stir till all the flour incorporate well in the water mixture and become a soft smooth dough.

Keep aside the dough to cool.

Arrange a piping bag with star nozzle.

Place a deep frying pan with sufficient oil to the stove top to heat.

Pour the prepared churro dough to the piping bag.

Keep a scissor ready with which you cut off the churro dough to separate during frying.

When oil is very hot, reduce the flame and carefully pipe in the oil to make medium sized churros. Cut off dough with scissor after each churro.

Allow them to fry in medium hot oil for about 2 minutes.Don’t stir at this point.

After 2 minutes flip them to fry evenly.

Fry them to light golden brown.

Transfer to a kitchen towel and sprinkle some grated cheese and chilli flakes when they are still hot.

Repeat the same process to fry all the churros.

Take chopped dill leaves, cream cheese, yoghurt, salt and sugar in a bowl.

Mix well to combine and transfer to a serving bowl.

Enjoy the spicy Indian flavoured churros with the dip. You can make other dip or chutney of your choice.
