Popcorn Seasonings - Add a Spicy, Curry
Flavoured Twist to Your Corn

There were no popcorn seasonings when I was growing up, well not here in the UK anyway, and we made do with just hot salty butter for taste. But today you can get any number of flavours: Cajun, Italian, Southwestern and BBQ to name a few. Below is my version of a curry powder flavouring(See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

Note: Whilst whole peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds are best for flavour in this recipe, you can use pre-ground if that's all you have available. Just reduce the amount it says in the ingredients by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of coriander seeds you use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.

Homemade Popcorn Seasonings

What You'll Need: (makes about 5 tbsp)

2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp peppercorns
1-2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1-2 tsp sea salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the salt, coriander, peppercorns and cumin seeds
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Add the ground powders and combine thoroughly

That's it, super simple! If you need more, just double or treble the quantities.

Store your popcorn flavouring in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

How to Use the Mix

How I Use it to Make 2 Servings:

  • Make the popcorn and add to a bowl
  • Melt 6 tablespoons of butter
  • Pour the melted butter over the corn
  • Sprinkle about 1-1½ tablespoons of the blend all over and give it a vigorous shake to get an even coating

Serve and Enjoy!
