2 tsp - oregano
Half tsp - black pepper powder

Now, sprinkle this seasoning on top of popcorns. Add in grated parmesan cheese and then drizzle over the lemon juice.
3 Hacks To Get The Perfect Crunch And Flavour In Popcorns
- Once you are done preparing the seasoning, add it over popcorns only when they are piping hot. This is because hot popcorns absorb the spices better and the flavour blends in quite well.
- When you're adding in cheese, making sure the slices are grated properly and no lumps remain. Lumps would only get stuck at the bottom of the container and won't mix well with the popcorns.
- Since lemon juice is a non-dry topping, make sure you add it in intervals after giving in a nice stir, each time.
So, without further ado, ace the art of making perfect popcorns at home and enjoy with family and friends. Happy Cooking!
