Today , I am sharing this very simple and delicious recipe of caramel popcorn and check popcorn .
Hey , foodies , welcome to cooking shooting .
Let's begin .
So we will begin with the popcorn itself .
I have round variety of popcorn which is mushroom popcorn .
You can also use the regular variety which is known as butterfly .
Anything that's available can be used .
If I'm using half cup of it , we will heat up a card high in high flame as we are going to pop the corn .
At first , the flame needs to be high , add oil to it about two tablespoons and then we will add the popcorn also begin stirring it .
The oil should be enough to coat them really well .
So here I'm adding one more tablespoon of the oil in total .
This is about three tablespoons of oil stir this with a big spoon and we are going to cook it until it begins to get lighter in color .
Only about 30 seconds .
Guys , after about 30 seconds , you will notice how these are getting lighter in color .
Now spread them in a thin layer so that all of them pop and we are going to cover it with the lead , keep the flame high .
And in about one minute , all the popcorn will be popped .
You can also make the recipe with the act two popcorn .
If you want to just that , you have to be careful when you are coating it .
And the music is paused here .
Our plain mushroom Gourmet popcorn is ready for making different flavors .
We are going to now open the lid a little bit so that the steam can escape , turn off the flame and let the steam escape so that they get crunchy .
Here , you can see the popcorn is looking amazing .
Now , we are going to take it out into two bowls as we are making two flavors .
So the popcorn is divided .
Now we are going to make the salted caramel popcorn at first .
So for that heater packet high in high flame , we are going to make caramel .
So you have to be very careful here .
I have half cup of sugar , add it in and heat it up in high flame .
If you are making all caramel popcorn , I mean , if you are making caramel popcorn of the whole batch , then you have to use one cup of sugar .
Basically double the quantity of the popcorn kernels make a thin layer as I'm doing right now of the sugar and let it melt in high flame .
Be very careful guys as we are making caramel , this is hotter than boiling water .
If it comes in contact , it will be very bad .
Keep stirring it , especially at this stage where the sugar has begun melting .
And if the sugar crystals are sticking to the spoon , then you can use a knife and break them apart .
We want the sugar to melt evenly .
So at this stage , you can keep the flame medium and then begin stirring it and cook it until we get a sunny golden type of caramel .
The color of the sugar should be Suning golden .
This looks great .
Now you can see there is no more silver crystal and the color is also sunny golden .
Now we are going to add butter which is one tablespoon and a little bit of salt .
This is two pinches of sal or basically one teaspoon .
Now give it a stir , keep the flame low and we're going to cook it until the caramel starts foaming .
You have to be extremely careful guys , it can be dangerous after about 30 seconds or so .
We are going to add baking soda here .
You can see the baking soda quantity is one a teaspoon or basically two pinches .
Now you can see bubbles are there in the center .
We will turn off the flame .
The caramel is forming .
If you cook it anymore , then you will get a burnt flavor .
The flame is off , add the baking soda and give it a stir , see how it is forming up .
Now , the caramel is ready .
We are going to add the popcorn and then stir it at first , it will feel like the caramel is not getting coated at all , but don't worry , keep stirring it patiently .
And in about one minute , all of the caramel will be coated .
You have to start from the bottom because the caramel is at the bottom .
Here , most of the popcorn pieces are coated .
Now , I'm taking it out into a plate so that it can cool down .
Don't touch it right now , guys , it is way too hot .
You can use two forks and then try to spread them so that they don't stick together .
We will let it rest for about 10 minutes after that , it will be party time .
So after 10 minutes , our popcorn is ready and it will be very crunchy right now if it feels like they are stuck together , don't worry , just try to break them apart and with a light hand , they will easily separate .
And by the way , if they are stuck to the plate , don't worry .
After about five or 10 minutes , they will easily open .
So here our chicky popcorn or salted caramel popcorn is ready .
Let's enjoy .
The first variety is ready for me guys .
I have to make the second variety also for you guys .
Let's make the male the chat popcorn for that year .
I have a bowl in this .
I'm taking 1.5 teaspoons of Charred Masala , one teaspoon of Pudina powder or dry mint .
You can skip this if you don't have it .
We basically dry the extra leaves at home in sun after one day .
It looks something like this .
I'm also taking 1.5 teaspoons of red chili powder because I like it very spicy , same quantity of salt and we will mix it .
So the dry powder is ready if you want the popcorn to be extra crunchy , just Sprinkle it and you can enjoy .
But if you are like me who enjoy sour and spicy taste , then you can squeeze one lemon and then mix it with the lemon juice .
Only corn is that the popcorn will get soggy after about 15 to 20 minutes .
So you have to eat it immediately .
So after mixing the lemon juice here , you can see the consistency is looking kind of liquid .
We will add the popcorn and then mix it .
Our spicy popcorn is ready to eat .
Now , let's enjoy .
So that was the recipe for popcorn two ways .
Do share it with your friends if you liked it .
Homemade version is the best guys .
