Common Mistakes

One common mistake is to not cook the dough long enough. This will result in churros that are doughy on the inside and not crispy on the outside. Another mistake is to use too much oil when frying the churros. This will make them greasy. Use just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan and heat it to the correct temperature before frying the churros.
