Spicy Stovetop Popcorn

Organic corn kernels - 3 oz or around 1/2 cup
Peanut Oil - 1 tbsp
Butter -1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Paprika (optional) - 1/4 tsp

Take a large flat skillet and put it on medium low heat. Add oil, butter, salt, chilli powder and the corn kernels. Cover with a tight fitting lid.

Gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner. After a few minutes the kernels will begin popping.

Once the popping starts in earnest, continue shaking the pan by moving it back and forth. Once in a while try to keep the lid slightly ajar away from the face for a second only just to let the steam from the popcorn release so that the popcorns are crispy.

Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat and keep the cover on for a minute.

Now remove the cover, sprinkle paprika on top and enjoy warm crunchy spicy popcorns.
