Popcorn has to be the most underrated treat around, and these recipes are all about taking popcorn to the next level with these Indian inspired flavourings.
Tikka Masala Popcorn
1 dessertspoon of olive oil or melted butter
2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp ground pepper
In a large bowl, combine all the spices.
When the popcorn is just popped, pour it over the spice mix, then tumble it about in the bowl to coat the popcorn.
This one is the perfect use for the fine, powdery spices at the bottom of your chai tin.
Sweet Chai Popcorn
1 dessertspoon chai tea
1 tbl butter, ghee or your favourite cooking oil
2 tsp honey or sugar
In a small saucepan gently heat butter or oil with chai tea and honey or brown sugar. When its just hot, let it sit for a few minutes to let the chai flavours infuse. Pass it through a fine sieve, before pouring it over some freshly popped corn and mixing through. Sprinkle a pinch of salt over if desired.
