bollywood coconut curry popcorn seasoning

i got a fabulous new cookbook a few weeks ago (that will be associated with a great giveaway next week – exciting!) + one of the recipes that first caught my eye was this coconut curry popcorn seasoning.

i immediately thought of two of our friends who moved away from nashville not too long ago – they love indian food, they frequently cook lots of interesting dishes, + they are avid watchers of bollywood films. i sent them a message to see if they’d be interested in sampling a batch of this, + of course, they said yes!

when i started blending the seasoning, i wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. frankly, i was afraid it might be too spicy to handle. was i ever wrong! after popping up a quick bowl of popcorn, i tossed it with a liberal amount of the seasoning, + it was delicious – unlike anything i’ve ever tasted before. between the light buttery flavor of the popcorn + the bollywood seasoning, it was almost like an indian kettle corn. don’t take my word for it – try this instead of your standard popcorn + let me know what you think!
