You may have heard there’s a little event going on today.  Well, if you live in the US you couldn’t have missed it.  It’s Superbowl time!  For those of my readers who don’t know it’s a football game and an excuse for many Americans to overindulge in food, alcohol and noise.  I grew up watching football but the only time I’ve ever (and will ever) cheer for is Green Bay.  Sadly, they’re not playing this weekend. While there are plenty of Superbowl parties being held, we have always stayed home and watched the game.  This year, I thought that MarocBaba and the kids weren’t really paying attention.  To my surprise I was given a list of items that they wanted to have on Superbowl Sunday.  I hadn’t realized that it had become such a tradition for them!  So I’ll be making guacamole, sloppy joe’s, chicken wings and probably a few other appetizer-style items.

Tandoori Spiced Popcorn

If you’ve gotten up this morning and realized there’s a party to throw and no menu in place, the #SundaySupper team is here to help!  All of the contributors are sharing great Superbowl inspired recipes for your parties.

I chose to share this Tandoori popcorn for a few reasons.  First, it’s delicious.  Second, it’s so easy!  Third, chances are you have everything on hand right now to make this.  Even if you’re getting a late start cooking, put this out with a few other munchies to keep your family (and/or visitors) satisfied while you finish up the rest of the food.

What you need (for appx 5 cups of popped popcorn):

  • popcorn! You can pop it yourself or do like me and pop a bag of the microwave variety!
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp butter (enough to get all the popcorn a little wet
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp corriander
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp hot paprika or cayenne flakes
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric

How to Make It:

Place your popped popcorn in a large bowl. It’s important to leave enough space so that you can easily mix the spices. Melt the butter on your stove top or in the microwave.  Pour half the butter over the popcorn and mix.  Then add the rest of the butter mixing again to incorporate well. Finally sprinkle the spice mix over everything mixing regularly so that all of the popcorn is covered.

That’s it – super easy and really tasty!  You could mix in other things to make a party mix. Pretzels, crunchy chickpeas, raisins, or even MnM’s. But it’s pretty good all by itself!
