½ cup popcorn kernels
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pot with a lid. Add in the popcorn kernels and sugar and cover. After a few minutes you’ll start to hear the first pops of popcorn. Keeping the lid on, lift the pot and shake a few times. Repeat this every few seconds until the popping begins to slow.
Remove from heat and sprinkle the popcorn with spices. Gently toss the popcorn and serve immediately.
