Last Saturday, I was invited to the churros making demonstration and tasting at Momo 2 Go at Courtyard by Marriott Pune City Centre. It was such a wonderful experience. I really had a great time learning, tasting and meeting other bloggers who also came to the event.
Churros is a deep fried dough pastry. It’s sometime referred as Spanish Doughnut. I had them before, but I have never made them at home so it was nice to learn how to make them.
It’s was the late afternoon, perfect for timing for tea actually. Chef De Cuisine Rohan Sowani and his assistants at Courtyard by Marriott Pune City Centre gave us a warm welcome and introduced us to the churros.
There are different varieties of churros prepared at Momo 2 Go at Courtyard by Marriott Pune City Centre, and they are served with different kind of toppings. I personally love the plain churros dusted in icing sugar, but here in Momo 2 Go, you get them nicely coated in cinnamon sugar, dipped in chocolate or served with compotes.
The flavored churros are very interesting. You can have raspberry, chocolate, apple and caramel in them. The chef told us we could play with the recipe, and you could basically add anything into the basic choux dough to make different kind of flavored churros. I’m so excited to try to make it at home, and I will definitely share the recipe with you later.
When the chef started preparing the churros, we were given a chance to see everything up close and interact with them. I learn a thing or two about making this delicious snack.
Later, the tasting time, the churros were served with different kind of toppings along with hot tea and coffee.
They were delightful. I think they made a good tea time snack. They were slightly crisp on the outside and so soft on the inside. The toppings were delicious, too. We got a little bit of apple compote, raspberry compote, chocolate sauce and vanilla sauce for dipping. They were seriously indulging.
The churros are now on the menu at Momo 2 Go at Courtyard by Marriott Pune City Centre. Stop by for your teatime snack. You won’t be disappointed.
