well, to be honest, there is no rocket science in preparing a simple popcorn recipe. basically, when the corn kernels are heated with butter in a particular piece of equipment, it pops out to become popped corn. but traditionally it is made outside movie theatres with a designated vending machine to pop the corn kernels. i guess most of them still believe that popcorn can only be done with those machines. but trust me, it can also be made with a simple kadai on top of a gas cooktop. you do not have any sophisticated machine for it. moreover, with the same kadai you can also prepare different types of flavoured popcorn too. with this post, i have also showcased, 2 more additional flavours like caramel and desi masala flavour. these 2 additional should also excite you and your family.
