Serves: 2-3

2-3 tsp refined oil/ butter
Salt to taste
Chaat masala ( optional)


Heat pressure cooker at high flame, add corn kernels, oil/ butter, salt and chaat masala. Stir it to mix everything properly. 

Lower the flame to medium and close the lid without vent. Now let it cook till you hear pop sound , stirring your pressure cooker every 10- 20 secs to avoid burning  and even popping of your popcorn. When you are not hearing pop sound for 10 seconds then immediately turn off the flame , open lid and transfer pop corns in a wide vessel or sieve to avoid sogginess.

Be alert while making popcorn as if you let it sit for long in the pressure cooker after popping, then it will become soft instead of crunchy. So always be quick in transferring it to wide bowl after done. Don't forget to stir your pressure cooker in between popping process to get even popped pop corn without burning. If you are wishing to pack it for travel then let it cool completely then pack to restore its crunchiness.
You can add other flavours too as per your choice or can add more butter to get buttery pop corns.
