Pumpkin Churros with palm sugar caramel dipping sauce 南瓜西式油条

The first time I had Churros (Spanish doughnut) was in Gold Coast Australia, and I also made it at home but it was four years ago. Recently my kids told me that they have so long didn't have churros. So this time I made into pumpkin flavour since I still have a big piece of pumpkin in the fridge.

Usually churros are coated with sugar and cinnamon, but this time I prepared gula melake dipping sauce since I found pumpkin and gula melaka are good combo after I made pumpkin ondeh-ondeh.
