Green Tea Popcorn (matcha powder and icing sugar) / Caramelized Popcorn
It is so easy and simple to make popcorn at home. I bought a packet of raw popcorn (400g) for around $1.10 and within a few minutes I can enjoy my fresh popcorn. If you like it plain and healthy, there is no need to add anything (salt, butter or syrup). For a quick one, just toss with maple syrup or golden syrup. For a butter flavour variation, melt some non-dairy margarine plus some salt and mix well with the popcorn. This recipe can also be use as one of the kid activities during rainy days or school holidays, with a adult supervision!
Preparation: 2 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins
Ingredients (serves 2)
° 100g raw popcorn
° 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
° 50ml maple syrup, or to taste
1. Place the oil in a large sauce pan or wok. Pour in the raw popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon to mix well, ensuring all the raw popcorn are coated with oil.
2. Place the lid on the sauce pan or wok and set to medium heat. After 3 minutes, you will hear the popcorn starting to pop, do not remove the lid. Shake the pan or wok occasionally to prevent the popcorn from burning.
3. When the popping noises have slowed down and hardly any popping, off the fire. Stir in the maple syrup and ensure the popcorn is well coated.
4. Transfer the popcorn to a bowl and serve.
