Inspired and tweaked from a Stéphane Reynaud recipe, this is a surprising twist on the norm. Popcorn can be a reasonably healthy snack, although the classic styles are far from it.
Popping your own corn couldn’t be simpler – just heat a little oil in a large pan until shimmering, add the corn kernels and cover with a lid. Give it a little shake and then wait for the popping sound to subside.
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 50g popping corn
- 35g unsalted butter
- 1 tsp garam masala (or any curry powder)
- zest of 1 unwaxed lemon, finely grated
- Pinch of salt
Once you’ve popped the corn as described above, mix in the other ingredients whilst it’s still hot and serve. Too easy.
You could use pretty much any flavoured butter you might have.
