No Microwave Popcorn/Homemade Popcorn

     These days I am in need to make some snack for my little one after she comes from school. While thinking of options I thought about popcorn. Its easy to make popcorn from the packets available at market, but I didn't want to do that. Usually the ready to pop packets are laden with salt and butter and not very healthy. I wanted make it  from scratch. That's when i saw Elise doing a perfect batch of popcorn .
What you need ?

     To make a perfect popcorn you only need 2 ingredients , a big pot like pressure cooker or cooking pot along with covering lid (this pot should hold the popcorn while popping). The pot should not be too heavy because you need to shake it while popping . Of course you still need corn kernels and salt.

To make a perfect popcorn in home can be little tricky .

What is a perfect Popcorn ?

     It should not be burnt and also all the kernels has to pop ,that is the perfect batch of popcorn.
Follow the instructions carefully to make a perfect batch. These pop corns are perfect  for a snack on a weekend.
