Tandoori Flavored Popcorn

As Diwali is coming closer, I have been busy planning out all the snacks I am going to be making in my kitchen. Most of the snacks are fried so Tandoori Flavored Popcorn add perfect alternative as a healthy snack. 
These taste so flavorful and it hits the spot when you are craving something tangy and spicy. Serve it just like that or squeeze some lime juice on top to serve as an appetizer. I did not feel guilty eating them when I shoved so many in my mouth. My mom was so addicted to these when she came over and she asked me to make a batch for Diwali.
I made them over stove top and thought it was very easy.
Don’t forget to send me picture if you do make them
