Spicy Sweet Curry Popcorn

Spicy Sweet Curry Popcorn

We are big fans of popcorn in our house, not only because it's the perfect snack to go with movie night, but because it's a great palette for spice experiments!

Curry powder adds a beautiful yellow hue to popcorn, and the combination of the savory notes with a touch of honey is pretty addictive. Plus, the honey helps the spice to stick.

We love using our Madras Curry Powder, but feel free to experiment with any of our curry powders (such as Jamaican, Japanese, Thai or Vadouvan). 

Spicy Sweet Curry Popcorn
Serves 3-4

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Madras Curry Powder*
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt

Directions:
In a small saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Whisk in honey and salt. Set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a pot over high heat. Test the oil by putting one kernel in. If it pops right away, it's hot enough. Add the rest of the kernels, stir and put the lid on the pot. Shake vigorously until the popping slows down.

Whisk 1 tablespoon curry powder into the oil-butter-honey mixture.

Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and add the spice mixture, tossing with a spoon to coat. Add more salt, spice or butter as desired.

* You can substitute your favorite curry powder, such as Jamaican Curry, Japanese Curry, Thai Curry or Vadouvan. If you use Vadouvan, which includes salt, you might want to reduce the added salt in the popcorn recipe.
