Pre-heat the oven to 150 degree C.

Line up a baking tray with silicon mat or butter paper. Grease with butter.

Add the popcorn kernels in a  pressure pan, close with the lid and remove the vent. Wait for few minutes until the kernels, pop inside the pan.

Stop the flame when the popping sound stops. Open the lid.

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, add butter, brown sugar and corn syrup and put it on high flame on stove top. Stir till the butter melts and everything comes together.

Bring down the flame to low and stop stirring. Let it be on the low flame undisturbed for 5 minutes on the clock.

Switch off the flame and add baking soda. It will bubble up, so carefully stir now with a wooden spatula.

Pour the caramel syrup into the popcorn all around, making sure it will coat all of them.

Use a wooden spatula to stir up coating every single popcorn.

Now add the caramel coated popcorn in your prepared baking tray.
