Popcorn

Ingredients:

Popping Corns (Dry Makka Cholam / Popcorn Cholam) – 100 gms / 2 handful
Salt – 2 tsp (adjust according to your taste)
Chilli Powder – 2 tsp (adjust according to your taste)
Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
Chat Masala – ½ tsp (optional)
Cooking Oil – 5 tbsp

Cooking Instructions:





Heat oil in a deep and a wide pan. Add enough corns according to the size of the pan because the corn fills a lot of place in the pan when it pops out. When the oil starts to smoke, add corns to it and stir fry it. Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder and chat masala and stir fry it well. When the corn starts to pop out, you close the pan with a lid and simmer the flame. When you stop hearing the sound of corns popping out, switch off the flame and transfer it to a bowl and serve it.
