Who doesn’t love a good snack when reading. Be it a hot, indulgent cup of cocoa while reading a book set in a cold place or a bowl of caramel popcorn when reading a casual but exciting book there is something everyone prefers.
One of mine is this simple Caramel Popcorn made with Coconut sugar and coconut oil. Takes about five minutes and isn’t as sticky as stuff made with regular sugar.
I normally make this when I’m watching a movie or when I’m reading a book that doesn’t require my complete concentration. I never make it when I’m reading a borrowed book btw, sticky fingers and all.
Read on to know how I make this.
What you need :
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp powdered jaggery (can sub cane sugar)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4th cup popcorn kernels
Pinch of salt
Pinch of chilli powder (optional)
Place a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat. Add the oil and the sugars. Mix well. Once it gets hot add the corn and cover once it starts popping, shaking it constantly. Be careful of spatters please.
Once done, take it off the heat and immediately move it to the bowl. Sprinkle salt and chilli powder on top (if using).
That’s it! Your snack is ready. This method was something a friend showed me as a way to eat caramel popcorn but to use less sugar.
PS if this post doesn’t interest you please don’t worry. This isn’t a regular feature. Just one where I share a recipe I found for my bookish snacks once every few months. It’ll mostly be on instagram but I couldn’t resist since I loved the pic so much. Lol.
