Indian Spiced Popcorn

You can’t have a movie night without popcorn, so why not switch it up with this Indian spiced popcorn for a spicy twist on a classic.


Happy National Popcorn Day!!! This is a day that is seriously right up my alley. Have you guys ever looked at the national food days? No? Well, I sure have and for those that know are probably not surprised. I always look at the food for peoples birthdays and try to see if it matches their personalities or if it would be something fun to cook for them. Sadly my day does not. It’s international chocolate mint day, and there is nothing I dislike more than mint and chocolate together.

So moving past chocolate mint and on to something I can never resist - popcorn! To me, popcorn is a great snack option anytime and it’s such a blank canvas that you can truly make it into anything your craving.

So whether it’s sweet or salty, buttery or spicy have a bowl of popcorn and celebrate today!
