  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker, add the maize kernels and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  2. Cover with a lid and cook on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till you hear the popping sound.
  3. When the corn stops popping, switch off the flame and open the lid of the pressure cooker (refer handy tip). Keep aside.
  4. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the sesame seeds and cumin seeds, chilli powder and salt, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  5. Switch off the flame and add the prepared popcorn and mix well.
  6. Sprinkle the cheese and serve immediately.

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.
