Curry Movie Popcorn

Reveal day for Group D in the Secret Recipe Club has finally arrived, and I am all ready to go!

The blog that I was assigned this month is Koreafornian Cooking, and let me just tell you that the idea of Korean cooking intimidated the heck out of me. I was very excited to find about a dozen recipes that I knew I’d love to try and that I wouldn’t mess up. I made four things off her blog. The other three I will share in the next 2 weeks, but for today, I decided to go with the Curry Movie Popcorn because as soon as I read it, I wanted to try it. I didn’t even care what the recipe called for, I was just sure it was yummy. I love popping fresh kernels and adding my own ingredients to make it super yummy, but I will admit, I never considered using Curry Powder and I am SO grateful I did!

Total time
You can't beat the full flavor of curry on stove popped popcorn, makes this treat unique and great anytime!
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Korean American
Serves: 4
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder (or more to taste)
  • ½ cup (75 g.) popping corn
  1. Pop your popcorn by whatever method you desire. We popped ours on the stove top, while [Koreafornian|] air popped popcorn. We doubled the recipe because there were six of us noshing on it, but the recipe I have provided is suitable for 4.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and coconut oil over low heat. Can I just tell you, I've actually never been able to smell the coconut oil I use, but for some reason, this time I did. It smelled heavenly!!
  3. Add the curry powder, and stir well until smooth.
  4. Drizzle the curry-flavored oil while tossing the popcorn to evenly distribute the curry flavored butter. This was a lot harder to do than I thought it would be. Next time, I am going to preheat it all and actually pop the popcorn IN the sauce I made, but regardless.... It was actually super good and the kids gobbled it up quickly. (perfect after school snack!)
  5. If desired, sprinkle some salt, and toss the popcorn again. Serve immediately.

      Tammy I can’t wait to share! I loved your blog so much more than I thought I would – I am so intimidated by international cooking but seriously LOVED so many things! :) I will be posting in the next two weeks… I think one is scheduled for tomorrow. Yum! 😉

    Mmmmm! I’ve never ever thought of using curry on popcorn! I will most definitely be trying this! My favourite popcorn flavours made at home are peanut butter popcorn and kettle corn. (both recipes are on my blog). Yum! Thanks for sharing this one!

    I made sweet potato fries for the SRC this month. :)
