Fritter or Culler ( Xurros )

Xurros are made by just deep frying a sweet bread dough. Cheap and old tradition meal here. Normally you eat them with a cup of chocolate. The shape is commonly a strip.

What you need for 2-4 people
1 big glass of flour
1 big glass of water and milk (2/3 water, 1/3 milk)
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of vinegar

you need also some tool to make this long strip shape. If you don´t have anything, you can do some small balls instead.

Let´s start
In a saucepan, boil the milk, water, vinegar and salt. When it is hot, mix it with the flour.
Then put the mix inside the recipient you will do the shape mentioned before. Be careful as they should be or thin strips or small balls, because if they are thick or big, then it is going to be not enough cooked inside and it can be dangerous to fry.
Deep fry them. You can cut them before hand or afterward.
When you have finished, remove the extra oil and add the sugar. Serve them warm.

Enjoy/Bon Profit!
