A Taste of India
Updated: Aug 30, 2020
Inspired by popcorn I saw at Trader Joe's, this popcorn is half Indian and half American. So if you like Indian spices and easy-to-make popcorn, this is the perfect popcorn for you. I recommend using an air popper, as I always will. This is the popcorn popper I use. Let's get started. Air-popped popcorn: - Use the cup on the top of the popcorn-popper and fill it with popcorn. - TURN ON THE POPCORN-POPPER BEFORE YOU POUR THE POPCORN!!! - While the popcorn is popping, put in 1 tbs. butter and 3 tbs. olive oil in a 1/3 cup, and heat it in the microwave on high for 18 seconds (22 if you have an old microwave.) - Once the popcorn is finished popping pour the butter-olive oil mixture on the popcorn using a teaspoon. Make sure to stir the popcorn after pouring some of it on. - Sprinkle Tikka Masala, salt, and nutritional yeast on it to your liking.
Stovetop popcorn: - Put olive oil in a pot and pour 1/2 cup of popcorn in. - Keep the burner between low and medium (a little closer to medium.) - To pop the optimal amount of popcorn, shake the pot every 15 sec. or so. - Once the popcorn is done popping, turn the burner off and pour the popcorn into
a bowl. - Sprinkle Tikka Masala, salt, and nutritional yeast on it to your liking.
- Pop the popcorn in the microwave (it usually works best on popcorn mode.)
- Sprinkle Tikka Masala and nutritional yeast on it to your liking.
