Ingredients
Method
  1. Heat 1 tbsp of butter in a pressure cooker, add the maize kernels and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  2. Cover with the lid (refer handy tip) and cook on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Once the popping sound reduces, switch off the flame and open the lid of the pressure cooker. Keep aside.
  4. Immediately, heat the remaining 1 tbsp of butter in a broad non-stick pan, add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, chaat masala and little salt and sauté on a slow flame for a few seconds.
  5. Add the prepared popcorn, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

How to pack

  1. Allow it to cool completely, and pack in an air-tight tiffin box.

Handy tip:

  1. At step 2, do not put the gasket and whistle on the lid of the pressure cooker, to allow the steam to escape and avoid the popcorn from turning soggy
