Cheese Popcorn ( Finger Foods for Kids ) recipe - How to make Cheese Popcorn ( Finger Foods for Kids )

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 4 servings
Show me for servings

3 tbsp oil
3/4 cup dry corn kernels
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp butter
1/4 cup cheddar cheese powder , readily available in the market
1 tsp red chilli flakes
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper powder
  1. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker, add the corn and salt and sauté on a high flame for a few seconds.
  2. Cover with a lid and cook on a very slow flame for approx. 4 to 5 minutes or till you hear the popping sound. When the corn stops popping, remove from the flame and open the lid of the pressure cooker (refer handy tip).
  3. Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the cheese powder, chilli flakes and pepper, mix well and remove from the flame.
  4. Add the prepared popcorn and toss well.
  5. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.

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.

This recipe turned out really good, my kids loved it. I didn''t ass chilli flakes though because I figured it''d be too hot for them. I love popcorn though, especially cheese popcorn. Dang, now I''m craving some fresh popcorn.
