I dedicate this recipe to Happy New Year movie , kids wanted to watch this movie in theatre and after Humshakal , we are actually scared of movies …sheer and pure torture it was …We convinced kids that Haseeb will download the movie they can watch it at home and their condition was that hall has to set up like a theatre and Rasha wanted caramel popcorn this led to the search for this recipe ….to my luck , I had corn syrup at home and in no time caramel popcorn was ready….
When I served the popcorn to Rasha , she was ok about it not as excited as I would have expected her to be but after 10 minutes , she hugged me and said mom , it’s better than the theatre one ….Mom said that it was crunchy and very addictive ….
- Popcorn – 10 cups ( approx ) ( I used the micro oven one )
- Granulated white sugar – 1 cup
- Dark brown sugar – 3/4 cup
- Light corn syrup – 1/2 cup
- Water -1/4 cup
- Butter – 1/4 cup
- Baking soda- 3/4 tsp
- Salt – 2 pinch ( if required ) ( I didn’t add as my popcorn had salt )
Note : To find out the hard crack stage drop the sugar syrup in a cup of water and you can see it forming a hard ball or use a candy thermometer ( 149 C or 300F )
To get sticky caramel popcorn ,remove from fire in the hard ball stage .
I took 20 minutes to make this popcorn
Happy cooking …..
