  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp oil

  • Make sure to buy popcorn kernels and not normal corn kernels.Take a wide thick bottomed pan with lid, I used my pressure pan.Add oil to it.
  • Swirl the pan so that oil is evenly distributed. Heat oil in medium flame,then add 2 corn kernels it will pop up in few seconds.This is the right temperature  we need.Now measure popcorn kernels.
  • Add it,give a quick stir and cover it with a lid.Simmer the flame.Now lift the pan from flame and shake it for 2 seconds then place in flame.
  • Repeat this until all the kernels are popped out.Once the popping sound is stopped, you can switch off flame and remove it.Set aside.
  • Take butter in a tadka pan, heat it up for just 2-3 seconds until it melts.Now pour it over the popcorn.Add salt and toss it.


  • Make sure you choose a pan which is wide and some space to hold the popcorns.
  • Make sure to first try popping out few corn kernels then add the rest.
  • You can add any flavouring of your choice.
  • If you want you can even add a pinch of pepper powder.
