Stovetop Popcorn

Homemade popcorn and that too in stove top is always good.I used to buy the microwave popcorn from the store until I read  several articles about the harmful effects of the chemical used in artificial butter flavoring.

Making popcorn is not that hard.Once you get the hang of it,you would never go back to the store bought popcorn.

Ingredients:

Popcorn kernels - 1/3 cup

Corn oil - 3 Tbsp

Salt as required

Season salt - 1 tsp(You can use seasoning of your choice like cayenne pepper,chat masala,ground pepper.The variations are endless)

Method:

Heat the oil in a large in a large pan with lid.Add salt and 3 kernels to the oil.If they start spinning,add the remaining kernels in one layer and turn the heat to medium..Cover the pan with a lid leaving a gap for the steam to escape.Once they start popping,take the pan away from the stove and shake with the lid closed and continue till you hear no more popping.Remove from heat and transfer to another bowl and add your favorite seasoning.
