Chili Lime Popcorn



This asian inspired popcorn snack is something unique which you ought to try. Instead of the normal salt and butter infused popcorn, this Chili Lime Popcorn is spicy, tangy, and sweet. As usual, popcorn is best when eaten warm. Please share if you have any other interesting favorite popcorn flavorings?

Chili Lime Popcorn

Ingredients

½ Cup Popcorn Kernels
¼ tsp Sea Salt
3 Tbsp Peanut or Canola Oil

Chili Lime Flavoring
2 pieces Thai/Vietnamese Palm Sugar
2 to 3 tsp Chili Flakes
1 Tbsp Peanut Oil
3 Tbsp Lime Juice
¼ tsp Sea Salt
Ground Black Pepper

Method

Pop the popcorn in a large pot. Place the oil in the pot and heat over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add the popcorn, covering the bottom of the pan with an even layer of kernels. Cover the pan and let the kernels heat until they begin to pop vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes. Shake the pan every 15 seconds so that the kernels will not burn. The corn should finish popping in 3 to 4 minutes.



In a heavy-bottomed small saucepan, combine the sugar, chili flakes, oil, lime juice, sea salt and some black pepper. Heat over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolve and golden in color, about 5 minutes. Pour the sugar mixture into the popcorn; use a wooden utensil to help coat the corn.

  1. Your popcorn looks absolutely delicious -- I'm going to have to try it as soon as possible!

    I recently made kettle corn and then drizzled white chocolate over it (and sprinkles, for the beauty factor) and sprinkled it with salt and it was delicious! Take a look if you have a free moment! http://foodfacechomp.blogspot.com/2012/06/kettle-corn-white-chocolate-sprinkles.html

  2. This sounds amazing! Can you use regular sugar if you can't find palm sugar? About how many tbsp would "2 pieces" be? And are chili flakes the same as red pepper flakes?

  3. Thanks! I am sure you can use regular sugar. Two pieces of palm sugar= 3 tablespoons, and chili flake is the same as red pepper flakes.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
