Ingredients

  • Dried corn kernels ½ cups
  • Oil 1 tbsp
  • Butter 1 tbsp
  • Onion powder ½ tsp
  • Garlic powder ½ tsp
  • Red chilli powder ½ tsp
  • Black pepper powder ½ tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar ½ cup
  • Jaggery (gur), grated 1 cup

Methods

  • To make popcorn, put ½ cup of corn in a pressure cooker, add 1 tbsp of oil, mix and keep the cooker on high heat. Cover with lid but do not lock cooker. The corn will start popping and once it stops popping it is ready.
  • To make a spice mix, heat 1 tbsp of butter in a non-stick pan. Add onion powder, garlic powder, red chilli powder, pepper powder and salt and mix well for 1-2 minutes. (You may add ½ tsp lemon juice if you like).
  • For the caramel flavour, melt sugar and jaggery in a non-stick pan for 2-3 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the mixture does not burn and melts evenly. Once it turns brown it is caramelized.
  • Put half the popcorn in one bowl, pour hot caramel, toss well and serve. Put the remaining popcorn in another bowl, re-heat spice mix if cool and then pour over the popcorn. Mix it well and serve.
