Popcorn, a beloved snack enjoyed worldwide, is not only tasty but also a healthier option compared to many other snacks. Rich in fiber and low in calories, it can be a guilt-free treat when prepared correctly. Despite its simplicity, achieving perfectly popped popcorn can sometimes be challenging. This recipe and tips ensure a fail-proof method for making popcorn that pops perfectly every time.

Tips for Perfect Popcorn:

  1. Use a transparent-lid pot or pan so you can see when the popcorn is ready.
  2. Preheat the pot or pan before adding any ingredients.
  3. Use a small amount of cooking oil. Avoid butter or margarine as they can make the kernels soggy and slow to pop.
  4. Add sugar only after popping. Adding sugar too early can make it bitter and cause the popcorn to burn easily. For a savory flavor, use salt.
  5. Once the pot is hot, reduce the heat, add the dry corn kernels, and cover.
  6. Avoid opening the lid too often, but shake the pot occasionally to distribute heat evenly.

Selecting the Right Corn Kernels:

For guaranteed success, use packaged popcorn kernels specifically meant for popping. These can be found in most supermarkets and are usually available in 200-gram packages, priced around Rp10,000 to Rp15,000 ($0.70 to $1.05, converted from Indonesian Rupiah). One package can be used multiple times.
