Curry Spiced Popcorn

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 4


OK I admit it, I’m a popcorn fiend! But why wouldn’t I be? It’s light, crispy and oh so easy to make, plus you can make it sweet, salty or a mixture of the two! These little popped corns no longer have to be viewed as a just treat for movie time or a children’s party snack, you can also create flavours that make them a classy and sophisticated delight. My Curry Spiced Popcorn recipe is flavoursome and packs a punch to spice up your next occasion.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Spray olive oil


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan on high. To test it’s the right temperature, add a popcorn kernel and see if it starts spinning. If it does, you’re ready to go!
  2. Chuck in the popcorn kernels and add the lid before giving the pan a bit of a shake.
  3. Continue to shake the pan well every 15-20 seconds, use a tea towel to stop burning your hands.
  4. Once the kernels are popping rapidly, turn the heat down and continue to shake regularly until the popping slows right down.
  5. Remove from the heat.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the curry powder, nutritional yeast, cumin seeds and salt.
  7. Spray the popcorn kernels with olive oil spray and evenly sprinkle the spice mixture over the top.
  8. Give the pan a good shake and serve immediately.
