Savory curry and cayenne popcorn

Mmm: Crunchy, salty, buttery popcorn. Who doesn't like it?

My Guy. That's who.

My Dumb Guy isn't a fan of movie popcorn, specifically the non-butter, butter crap. He likes the salt, but only a bit. My Dumb Guy likes, LIKES dry, nothing-on-it popcorn.

Luckily, there's a different popcorn recipe he likes even more: Savory curry and cayenne popcorn.

Turns out, he's not so much My Dumb Guy after all: This stuff is DELICIOUS!

Using your air popper (none of that nuked stuff here, guess why), prepare one popper full of corn.

With the corn in a very large mixing bowl, drizzle olive oil on the popcorn. Next, sprinkle on a visible, but thin layer of curry and Old Bay Seasoning. Add some ground sea salt and garlic (we like the McCormick grinder) and a dash or two of ground cayenne (however much you think your family will prefer).

Finally, get your hands into that bowl and toss the corn until the spices and oil are dispersed throughout the bowl.

Eat. YUM!


  1. Oh that sounds quite good! Thanks for sharing and enjoy!!

  2. Oh, man, am I ever hungry now. What a great recipe! Thanks, CB. I'm having popcorn tonight, fo'sho!

  3. I couldn't remember where I found your recipe. I am so glad I did. I made it and absolutely loved it! It is so much better with a little olive oil and the spices than butter. I am hooked.
