Expert Tips

India pale ale is a style of beer that is pale to deep amber in color and slightly more hoppy and bitter than other pale ale.

Garam masala is an Indian spice mixture. While its recipe is variable, garam masala usually consists of cardamom, cinnamon and cloves and may also include coriander, cumin, nutmeg, mace or pepper.

Brown rice syrup is a sweetener derived from brown rice. It has mild malty notes that enhance the beer flavor in this recipe. It is available at large supermarkets or specialty shops.

Interested in a non-alcoholic version? Root beer or cola can easily be substituted for the beer.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 300°F. Line two 15x10x1-inch pans with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, place popcorn and cashews; set aside.
  • 3 In 2-quart saucepan, heat ale over medium heat, frequently, until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 6 minutes. Pour into glass liquid measuring cup to confirm measure. Add back to saucepan. Stir in brown sugar, syrup and butter. Cook over medium heat until bubbly around edges, stirring occasionally.
  • 4 Reduce heat to medium-low; cook about 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and syrupy. Remove from heat; carefully stir in garam masala and salt. Pour over popcorn mixture in bowl; toss until evenly coated. Spread popcorn mixture in pans.
  • 5 Bake 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, to caramelize mixture. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
