Popcorn recipes

Popcorns  anyone ?? yes today am sharing a very simple snack which is healthy and most popular theater snack loved by all ages. A wonderful movie with glass of coke and a bag of pop corn in hand is perfect way to enjoy a movie isn't it. Though popcorn our famous as a theater snack it is a fuss free snack to carry in car if you are going for long road trip. This week I chose Car snacks theme for Bm, when I was thinking on fuss free car snack the first thing came to my mind was popcorns and nothing else. So I made them quick and as it is chilli over here this was a perfect snack to have. I learn't to pop popcorns in my school when we had to plan a canteen for the whole student in school every week a person was assigned to pop the popcorns and pack them. I used to enjoy making them how much so ever as loved the popping sound a lot. yes I know you can make popcorns at home using a microwave or popcorn machine but wat if you want to make them on stove top with the popcorn kernels. You can customize and season them as you wish here I have done the Indian version of popcorn with masalas.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
