Bored of normal plain or butter popcorns!!!! 
Caramel pop corns is latest trend these days. But I wish to make something more healthy to avoid corn syrup. So here is my version of caramel popcorns, these are simple jaggery flavoured popcorns. These flavoured popcorns goes best for parties, birthday and picnics. Kids will enjoy and relish the flavoured popcorns and you can boost about a new recipe :)

Here is the video recipe for easy reference:

Below is the detailed recipe as well:

Popcorn kernels - 150 gms
Jaggery - 150 gms (quantity can be reduced as per liking)
Chopped Cashewnuts - 2 tsps
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp (optional)

1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a kadai and add popcorn kernels. Cover the kadai with a lid and keep it on medium flame. Let the popcorns pop up nicely. Popcorns will be ready in few minutes.
2. Once the popcorns are ready remove from the kadai.
3. In the same kadai, melt jaggery, keep on moving the jaggery to avoid burning. Add spices in melted jaggery. Mix well till there are no lumps in jaggery.
4. Remove the kadai from flame and add cashewnuts, sesame seeds and popcorns. Mix together with light hand to avoid crushing of the popcorns, till popcorns are coated well. While mixture is still hot, separate the popcorns which stick to each other. 
5. Jaggery flavoured popcorns are ready to serve.
