It is difficult to imagine a cine-outing without a tub of popcorn in hand. Popcorn and a tub of ice cream are staple accompaniments in binge-watching TV sessions as well.

With Netflix set to enter into India, here are a few recipes exploiting the popcorn to its fullest, some classic and some experimental.
