Pop Pop Pop

Have you been to cinema lately?

I was flabbergasted when I saw how much they charge for a small box of popcorn with drink.

The last time I made popcorn was 3 years ago. Time really flies. It seems like just yesterday we moved out of Seletar Airbase. haiz... beautiful memories from that place.

Anyway, my kids love popcorn. So while grocery shopping, I finally remember to grab a bag of kernel. (Yes I am very forgetful, even with shopping list, I tend to misplace it while doing grocery! 没得救)

Making popcorn is really easy. You just need a heavy wok cover and you will have freshly made popcorn in no time.

Initially, my girl requested for savoury popcorn. So I actually divided into two batches, a sweet (my favourite) and a savoury.


Before I had time to settle down, she already finished up my share as she was giving herself a "movie" treats by watching Chipmunk and munching on popcorn.

Now, I thought she said she prefers savoury?

What you need

3 handfuls corn kernels
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
1 cup sugar


Heat oil in the wok and add in corn kernels. Stir evenly.

Add in butter and stir fry.

Cover the wok and lower to medium heat.

Open the cover only when popping sound stops.

Remove from pan and into a bowl that is big enough for the popcorn.

Add the sugar in a non stick pan and caramelised it on low heat.

When sugar has melted, pour over the popcorn and stir evenly till all pop corns are coated.
