MASALA POPCORN and Friday Night Movies

What could be a better way to spend a Friday night, then popcorn and a movie with great friends? A night in front of the screen and big bowls of masala popcorn in your hand makes any movie night memorable! This masala popcorn is bite-sized, crunchy, a sprinkle of fine salt – but also divine when you take it over the top with spices. The flavor comes from a blend of Indian masalas like chat masala, garam masala with green chillies, chillies flakes and curry leaves. Yep it is absolutely addictive!IMG_8196-1-1 bmIMG_8158-1 bm
