Ok. I am in love. And I don’t say that lightly. This Homemade Sweet and Spicy Coconut Curry Popcorn is a new snack favorite… for all time. It’s lightly sweet, spicy, and almost addictive.

Plus, it’s the easiest snack… ever!

So. In full honesty, I’ve never been a huge popcorn fan. It’s fine… but it never seems to catch my eye.

Now curry, on the other hand, will ALWAYS catch my eye, my imagination, and I will walk a mile to get it.

My 28th Street neighbors who moved there from all over the curry capitals of the world, I’m sure, chuckled behind their back. I was always asking for curry. For every block party, every girl’s gathering, every cooking club meeting.

I love curry. Obviously.

So… now you understand why I love this Coconut Curry Popcorn.

No longer is popcorn that bland little, okay, it’s there and if I’m really munchy, maybe I’ll-take-a-bite kind of snack. For me, it’s like, “Are you going to finish that, husband?”

And yes, packed in snack size baggies in my pantry goodies basket, are little bites of yum.

It’s movie season in our house. March Madness has passed, football is long over, baseball is just getting started… and while I’m sure there is a soccer game somewhere… I get the clicker for a little while– which means… some movies. My husband will watch with me, sometimes. The son… well, no, not usually. But, if I’ve made snacks, maybe. I’m smiling… Popcorn will generally bring them around.

And this recipe will keep them interested.

If you love curry… try this! It’s so simple.

  • Author: Stephanie Wilson
  • Yield: Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 kernels of popcorn. Once they pop, add the rest of the kernels, shake the pan lightly to distribute the oil. Cover the pan with a lid, but tilt or crack it slightly to let steam escape.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the curry powder, cayenne, and salt; whisk vigorously to combine. Keep warm while the popcorn pops.

When the popcorn finishes popping, immediately pour the warm curry butter over the popcorn while it’s still hot. Stir thoroughly. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl and shake to make the unpopped kernels settle to the bottom.

Serve warm. Yum… and double yum!
