The paneer popcorn was a trial made last month as a part of 30 days healthy snacks and we loved the way it turned. The paneer popcorn recipe was tried again and the best part was it remaining crispy even after 2 hours. You can pack this for snack box too and retain the crispy nature place a tissue inside. I have experimented it with yam chips and all our friends loved relishing it after hours of cooking

Adjust spices as per your taste.
