Spoonful of Chutney – Masala Popcorn
By: Shreya Suresh
Of late, I’ve been nostalgic for the popcorn of my childhood – a little spicier and a little less buttery. Then I visited a cousin who told me it’s quite easy to make at home. I could’ve waited until the weekend to enjoy it with a late night movie, but my impatience got the best of me and I made it on a Monday night.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe for Masala Popcorn.
¼ cup popping kernels
1 tablespoon oil
Salt to taste
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon red chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
Curry powder (adjust according to how spicy you want it)
Add all the ingredients to a thick-bottomed pot and place over a medium heat. Keep the pot partially covered with a lid and shake around from time to time. When the popping slows down, pour into a large serving bowl.
Enjoy with hot tea and a movie!
