  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large, deep skillet to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
  5. Pipe strips of dough into the hot oil, cutting with scissors to your desired length.
  6. Fry the churros until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  8. In a shallow dish, mix 1/2 cup granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
  9. Roll the warm churros in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until evenly coated.
  10. Drizzle a small amount of teriyaki sauce over the churros for a savory contrast.
  11. Alternatively, you can serve the teriyaki sauce on the side for dipping.
  12. If desired, dust the churros lightly with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
