The smell of freshly made popcorn and that of burnt butter are often associated with a night at the movies. Today, popcorn has moved to a completely different level with numerous flavors, savory and sweet both, and all sorts of ways to make it.
I recently tried a rather unusual flavored popcorn, the Savory Masala with Papadums. Made locally in small batches, this popcorn brings Indian cuisine flavors as it uses unique spices and herbs. This all natural popcorn is made with non-GMO corn, is gluten-free, contains no trans fats and is suitable for vegans.
The Savory Masala is made with organic air-popped popcorn, papadum (made with urad dal flour), rice bran oil, sea salt, red chili pepper flakes, garlic, organic coconut palm sugar, mustard seeds and turmeric.
A serving size of 28g has only 100 calories with total fat of 3.5g, 0 transfat and 0 cholesterol. 180mg of sodium per serving is a standard and carbs reach 16g, with only 2g of sugars. Expect a small dose of protein as well with 3g per serving.
The Masala Popcorn is a tasty way to bring some Indian spices in your snacks. Try the other flavors – the Tamarind Sesame Popcorn with Papadums and the Chai Masala with Oregon Hazelnuts Popcorn. They are all yummy! Available online here: http://eatmasalapop.com/store/
