Easy Microwave Recipe - Popcorn in 2 minutes

Easy Microwave Popcorn Recipe

Making popcorn in a microwave is not a new recipe. Anyway I found it recently & started to make them at home. This is a ridiculously easy recipe.

I did this again yesterday during my office lunch time. Yes, I have started to share my recipes with my colleagues. :) We have a plan to cook something new in each week. Anyway it is a challenge as I have to consider many things while selecting a recipe. It must be easy, must suit with tastes of friends from different Nationalities, must be able to cook using the few utensils at office, must be with less ingredients etc etc

Easy Microwave Recipe - Popcorn

Last week I introduced ‘Microwave Potato Chips’ & all of them enjoyed it much. I am really happy when they admire the recipe I introduced to them.

So this is my microwave popcorn recipe I tried with them.

I used powdered sugar with popcorn as it is much easier. However there are many different toppings with salt, chili, garlic powder etc.

Ingredients (For 1 small bag of Popcorn)

3 tbs corn kernels
1-2 tbs powdered sugar to taste (or use salt to taste, or add your topping later)
1 tsp cooking oil
1 brown paper bag


Open the brown paper bag & pour the corn in.

Pour the oil & sugar (or seasoning).Shake well.
Then fold the bag twice on top. Some recipes mention about using a staple pin, but I don’t use & it is fine.

Set the bag in microwave.

Cook 2 minutes in ‘High’.
You will here the popping sound continuously.

After 2 minutes, take the bag out.
Open with care avoiding the steam.
Wow!! Microwave popcorn is ready!!!

Pour them on to a bowl.
Add a topping of your choice if you do not like it with sweet taste.
