Make popcorn, melt butter whilst doing. Into Large bowl pour 1/3 the corn, put butter on, add generous amount of grated Parmesan cheese, add generous brewers yeast (large) flakes, sprinkle with curry (I use Sun Brand Madras Curry Powder....repeat with next third, and then the last. And...whilst eating, try dipping kernels in hummus!
