For making popcorn:


  • Take a sauce pan, add sugar and water.
  • Add butter.Let it melt and boil.
  • It will become frothy and slightly change color. Do not mix, do not use spoon.Just swirl the pan and cook in low flame.
  • Add vanilla essence. It will become more frothy and the color changes from light shade to dark color.
  • When it forms a thick sauce and is dark golden in color switch off and immediately add it to popcorn. Do not burn, this is the correct stage.
  • Mix it , it will form thick threads, don't worry keep mixing. It will be sticky, transfer to a foil or baking sheet.Allow it for 5 mins then separate the chunks.Cool down then store.


  • While making the sauce, DO NOT MIX,DO NOT USE SPOON.
  • Be careful while pouring the sauce to popcorn.
  • Make sure not to burn the sauce, when it turns to golden brown switch and immediately add it else it will harden then you can;t mix it.
  • You can even use 1/2 cup sugar for a more sweeter version.But I feel this is perfect.Usually the ratio is 1:2(corn kernels:sugar).
