It’s Movie Night! What kind of popcorn are we making tonight?

We love popcorn at our house. We want a recipe with flavor and pizzazz. This Curry Butter Popcorn hits the spot each and every time we whip up a batch.

We enjoy popping up some kernels and adding a little seasoning, a little spice. We have tried lots of combinations with popcorn, but I had never tried any type of Curry Popcorn.

I also wasn’t sure how much we’d like it.

Well, we did! We absolutely loved it. And it makes VERY frequent appearances at our house when we are craving some movie theater popcorn!

It looked incredibly delicious and the idea of Korean cooking intimidated me a bit simply because I had never done it before.

So Curry Popcorn it was. And I’m not at all sorry.

As I am updating this recipe 7+ years later, I’m SO happy we picked it. We’ve made it dozens upon dozens of times.

We decided to go with the Curry Movie Popcorn because as soon as we read it, we wanted to try it.

We didn’t even care what the recipe called for, we were just sure it was yummy.

I mean, we love popping fresh kernels and adding my our own ingredients to make it super yummy, so why not with some Curry powder. Yes, it was simply perfect.

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder or more to taste
  • ½ cup popping corn


  • Pop your popcorn by whatever method you desire. We popped ours on the stove top, while others enjoy air popped popcorn.
  • 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!!
  • Add the curry powder, and stir well until smooth.
  • 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. Just really stir it in. If you have a large bowl with a lid, you can shake it up in that. That worked best for us!
  • If desired, sprinkle some salt, and toss the popcorn again. Serve immediately.
