When combined with interesting spices, popcorn can become a sophisticated snack good enough for parties. Experiment with your favorite herbs and spices, keeping in mind these tips:

  • Spices that need to be cooked (like cumin, coriander seeds, mustard seeds and turmeric) are best sizzled in oil before you add the corn.
  • Powdered spices or seasonings can be sprinkled on once the popcorn is cooked. 
  • Add seasonings to hot popcorn to ensure that the spices stick to the kernels.
  • Eat immediately.
