When cousins get together to make fun plans for a family wedding,food plays a vital role ! With excitement in the air punctuated with loud laughter,every day dawns with a smile ,especially for the kids ! The weather being hotter than the usual hottest temperature…I didn’t even know that was possible,by the way !!!!…in between all the other activities my brain had to come up with light, healthy snacks ! The calorie loading is anyway going to happen later !!!! 😀
When I first saw this packet of coloured popcorn kernels in a super market in KL, I was so excited and couldn’t wait to pop them with the kids ! Well ! That was the plan !! Getiing my busy family together is another activity by itself ! So, I finally decided that it was the perfect snack for the weather and for the tummy !!!
I was sooo excited at the different colours. I visualized white, mauve and pink popcorn ! Since I don’t have a popcorn maker , I used a large pan ,added a dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt ,flame on low and closed the pan with a lid !
How I love the sound of corn popping…it’s really like a bit of kitchen magic ;). Oh…but I was terribly sad to see all the popped corn to be of the same colour …a bit of a let down ,that was ! Glad the kids weren’t with me ,or I would’ve never heard the end of it :p …but still pop went the corn kernels !
That’s a satisfying sight for sure ! Some hot butter and salt…yum ! We skipped that and added a sprinkling of chaat masala powder,after it became a little cool…no butter for the bridesmaids !!!! Since I do have some leftover,maybe I will add some other flavourings too !
