Home Made Popcorn

The second week of Blogging Marathon #8 starts today.  This week I have chosen 'Cooking with 5 ingredients or less' and 'Nawabi khana'.I am starting today with 'Cooking with 5 ingredients or less'.

Pop corn is a popular snack that we all enjoy. Lil Angel would suddenly crave for this after school and we love to munch it together. I always keep a packet of dried corn kernels for those sudden cravings...

Here is an interesting link about the history of this famous snack - Popcorn:Ingrained in America's Agricultural History

I use:

Corn kernels [dried] - 1 cup
Butter - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste

  1. Heat a pan / pressure cooker.
  2. Put in butter. Swirl the pan around so that it coats the bottom of the vessel completely.
  3. Put in the corn kernels , salt and shake so that the corn is in a single layer.
  4. Cover leaving a small gap for the steam to escape.
  5. Once it starts popping, gently shake the pan.
  6. You can switch off the heat once the popping stops.
Crunchy popcorn is ready to munch
