Curry Popcorn and Nuts
A seasoned popcorn mixture with a lingering bite. An “adult” snack that is good to have at parties. Recipe contributed by Nikki and David Goldbeck, from American Wholefoods Cuisine.*
Makes about 7 cups
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- ½ cup peanuts
- ½ cup unroasted cashews
- ½ cup popping corn
- ¼ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Heat the oil in a large, broad pot with a tight-fitting lid. Sauté turmeric, cumin, sesame seeds, peanuts, and cashews over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes until aromatic but not more than very lightly colored.
Add popping corn, cover, turn heat to high and cook, shaking until popping is over, about 5 minutes. Remove form heat and toss in coconut and remaining seasonings.
Let cool to room temperature before serving. To keep, store in an airtight container.
