Indian Spiced Popcorn

Indian Spiced Popcorn

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 small onion, very thinly sliced
3 hot chili peppers, very thinly sliced
2 teaspoons garam masala/ or any curry powder
1 teaspoon nigella seeds/ black onion seeds/kalonji
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 cup popcorn kernels

In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil. Add the sliced onions and the chili peppers and fry over medium – high  heat, stirring occasionally, until they are golden, about 3-5 minutes. Remove the fried onions and peppers with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.

In the same pot, cook the garam masala/curry powder, pepper flakes and nigella seeds over moderate heat until fragrant, about a minute.

Stir in the popcorn kernels and toss well for all the spices to coat the kernels; cover and cook, shaking the pan every 30 seconds, until the kernels have stopped popping, about 8-10 minutes. Season the popcorn with salt and transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle the popcorn with the fried onions and chili peppers and pepper flakes, gently toss.

Serve as snacks.

Thanks to for this unusual recipe!
