- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker, add the maize kernels and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Cover with a lid and cook on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till you hear the popping sound.
- When the corn stops popping, switch off the flame and open the lid of the pressure cooker (refer handy tip). Keep aside.
- Heat the remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the sesame seeds and cumin seeds, chilli powder and salt, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Switch off the flame and add the prepared popcorn and mix well.
- Sprinkle the cheese and serve immediately.
- 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.
