    Fry the churros for about 2 to 3 minutes each side by turning them once midway through the frying process or until they look crisp and are golden brown in color.
    Transfer this to paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
    Step III
    In a paper bag, add sugar and cinnamon powder and mix.
    When churros are just warm, toss them in cinnamon sugar mixture so that they are evenly coated.
    Churros are ready. Serve them warm with dulce de leche and enjoy.
