This idea for Homemade Ginger Curry Popcorn came from the flavored salt I made. It was a big hit because of the strong, warm spices. I have always been a fan of bold flavors, and it lends perfectly well to a blank canvas like popcorn.
There are a lot of different homemade popcorn options out there, like microwaveable bowls and machines. This machine is perfect for a desk, but I typically prefer to make popcorn on the stove with a large stockpot. Get popcorn kernels here!
Curry powder has a wide range of flavor and heat. Many do not have much heat to them, so if you want a little spice, add 1/8 teaspoon of ground red pepper (cayenne) to the mixture until you get the heat you want. But the curry and ginger carry enough flavor on their own.
- Cook the popcorn as per package directions, or as follows: Add the oil to a large, 3 quart or larger pot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover, with the lid ajar.
- Shake the pot back and forth every few minutes. Remove from the heat when the popping has slowed and most kernels are popped, approximately 7 minutes. Set aside.
- While the popcorn is popping, make the seasoning mixture by combining the curry, ginger, parsley, and salt together. Season to taste, adjusting each as desired.
- When ready to serve, lightly drizzle the popcorn with approximately 1 teaspoon of oil. Just enough to wet the popcorn without it getting greasy or soggy. Stir to coat. Immediately sprinkle the seasoning on the popcorn and stir again to coat. Serve immediately.
