Natural popcorn from corn
The rhythm of modern life has made for us the usual dishes of instant cooking: semi-finished products, which before consumption should only be heated in a microwave oven, became the norm for most people. One of these products we eat quite often. This is popcorn, known for its natural origin and, therefore, useful properties, for which you can spend an enjoyable evening with your family or watch a movie.
However, popcorn, sold in cinemas and prepared in a microwave oven, contains a large amount of salt, preservatives and chemicals that can not be attributed to healthy food. To get a really useful treat from corn, use the recipe below.
- 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup natural corn for popcorn
- Salt to taste
Heat the oil in a frying pan and then put corn there. It should be fried for several minutes, stirring constantly, until a golden crust is formed. When popcorn balls begin to appear on the frying pan, cover it with a lid and at the same time move the pan from time to time so that the dish does not burn. When the sounds that are characteristic for turning corn into an airy easy delicacy stop, you can gently begin to spread the resulting dish on a plate. While the popcorn is still hot, you can add a small amount of salt to taste.
We remind you that 3/4 cups of popcorn is the daily norm of whole-grain foods, recommended by specialists.
