Masala Popcorn

Masala Popcorn

Popcorn is loved worldwide by almost everyone and has to be the best snack to eat whether you are at the cinema, watching a movie at home or just want a tasty treat. If I am at the cinema I always go for either salted or buttery popcorn (I am not a sweet popcorn girl.)

Fun fact:

What I love about popcorn is its versatility as you can have so much fun with flavouring it in innovative ways, whether you want it sweet or savoury.

To celebrate popcorn day, I have given the classic buttery popcorn a spicy twist and trust me this is so delicious to munch on (and I must warn you it is a bit addictive too).


  • 1 bag Microwaveable popcorn (or popcorn the traditional way)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds


  1. Microwave the popcorn or prepare the traditional way and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, add the butter and olive oil and heat on medium heat.
  3. Add the cumin seeds and when they sizzle, add the spices and salt.
  4. Mix well for a minute and add the popcorn into the pan.
  5. Stir the popcorn into the spicy buttery mixture and remove into a bowl.
  6. Eat while warm! It goes well with a cup of chai.

Hi, I’m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
