I actually never thought of making this recipe, you all will have to thank my wife as she was asking me for popcorn one day in the late evening. I told her that yeah, why not I can make popcorn on a stove with a wok. She was stunned and replied, really? show me! Hence that evening I made her some milk tea flavored popcorn and because of that, I am writing down how you too can make popcorn at home on a stove, in 3 flavors!

  • With a pan/pot, gently toss corn over low heat.
  • As the corn begins to pop, keep covered to prevent the corn from popping all around.
  • Once all the corn is popped, mix with your preferred flavor.

Incorporate Flavors

  • Once the dried corn has turned into popcorn, simply mix your preferred flavors in over very low heat. Stir well and serve.




  1. Any blend of flavors is possible for popcorn – syrup, honey, salted spices, spicy paprika, etc.
  2. As for syrup flavors, just make sure the blend of flavors is really thick. Otherwise, popcorn tend to turn soft very easily.
