This is a very speedy, almost comedically so, party-eat that is also, obligingly, rather thrifty to make. It's really quite zingy and packed with flavor and might alarm any passing child expecting more regular sugary fare. I find that it's hugely popular, which is why I make a substantial batch of it.

Ingredients

Directions

Put the wok oil into the biggest pan you have with a lid over high heat, add the popcorn and quickly put on the lid. Let the popcorn pop, shaking the pan every now and then to keep the kernels moving. You will hear it but don't be tempted to look, unless you want to get shot at, and once it has stopped popping - a couple of minutes or so - take it off the heat.

Melt the butter with the spices in another pan and then pour it over the popcorn and put everything into a large paper carrier bag/shopper. Shake, shake and shake the bag again to mix the popcorn and get it thoroughly coated in the spicy butter.

Arrange in several party bowls.
