About this recipe: You will never go back microwave popcorn after trying this recipe for the hob. It is made with oil, margarine and salt.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 100g unpopped popcorn
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Prep:2min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:7min 

  1. Start by lining a large serving bowl with kitchen paper, which will absorb excess oil.
  2. In a 2 litre saucepan, combine the oil, margarine and popcorn. Set over high heat, and constantly shake the pan back and forth. After the first kernel of corn pops, place the lid on the pot, and continue shaking. When the popcorn starts to lift the lid up off the pan, remove it from the heat, and hold it over the paper bag until it stops popping.
  3. Pour into the bowl and season with half of the salt. Shake the bowl to distribute the salt. Taste before adding more so you don't make it too salty. You can always add more salt.
