Sweet 'n' salty curry popcorn

MD and I snuggled up on the couch this afternoon, fire blazing (as much as a gas fire can!) to enjoy a movie as the rain poured down.  The end is in sight though as next weekend is the official last weekend of winter - yah!  We'll be spending it down in the South Island as we embark on a week long snowboarding mission!!  Anyway, back to the task at hand - a mid-afternoon movie requires some popcorn.  I've been meaning to try a spice mix I use to roast nuts for a chickpea-beetroot salad, thought it would go well on popcorn....and it did!

Place a knob of butter, 1/4 tsp each of salt, ground cumin, ground coriander and 1 T soft brown sugar in a pan and stir it around on low heat to melt the butter and combine the spices.  Add 1/2 c popcorn and increase heat (not too hot or you will burn the spices!).  Shake the pan until the corn pops.  Enjoy!!
