HOME MADE POPCORNS

HOME MADE POPCORNS
Since a lot of good movies have suddenly been released at one go, me and Yo were on a movie marathon and what better way to enjoy it if not with a bag of homemade popcorn. I don’t enjoy the popcorn popped in the machine in the theatre stalls somehow. So I usually sneak my own homemade popcorns in. People may say popcorns are popcorns wherever you may have it and however you may have it. I beg to differ…..once you have had homemade popcorns you would never enjoy the Microwaveable popcorns that are sold in the market or the theatre stall popcorns, the reason being these have excessive artificial salts, some kind of butters(which make the roof of your mouth feel slippery) and excessive husks which stick to your teeth.
So here is my recipe for Homemade crunchy munchy tasty popcorns
Ingredients
Corn Kernels – 2 tbsps
Vegetable cooking Oil – 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Method
You need a big deep cooking wok to pop the corn kernels.Dont’t use a small wok as you’ll probably end up popping more than your wok can hold.
Add one tbsp oil or enough to cover the corn kernels. Add some salt and mix well. Keep the gas on high. Don’t cover at this point keep mixing the kernels with the salt, so they get well coated. When the first kernel pops, immediately cover the wok and enjoy the pop-pop sound. Once the pop-pop sound subsides or almost reduces to one pop, put off the gas. You will notice that the lid of the wok has risen and 2tbsps of corn kernels have given you almost 2 bags of popcorns equivalent to one jumbo pack of popcorn that they sell in the theatres.
VARIATIONS :
A low fat version would be replacing the vegetable oil with Olive Oil
And for those who can afford the calories , you can use butter
