Not Harmful Kurkure Snack in Kolkata

with one comment


Kurkure had launched a new, delicious localized flavor with
‘East Parar Tok Jhal’ in Kolkata this April. This Kurkure snack is not harmful to health as it is made from rice, corn and special spices.

Since the snack was launched in Kolkata, I did not have the opportunity to taste. Did any of you taste it then do share your experience on the same? All of you must be thinking how on earth did I know about the flavour that was introduced in Kolkata. I have a very dear friend Nishi Bannerjee residing in the eastern part of the country, came to know about it from her.

She said that the new Kurkure ‘East Parar Tok Jhal’ flavour brings with it a tangy taste of mustard and a mouth watering mix of spices.

Made using rice, corn and gram blended with a variety of flavors, consumers can now enjoy the great taste of Kurkure products, cooked in high quality edible vegetable oil.

The new flavour derives itself from spices that put Indian food on a pedestal and as the name suggests, it celebrates the local cuisine & taste of the region! For Kurkure lovers, their very own tedha shaped snack will offer them a wider variety to choose from!

How cool is that, so people Kurkure is not harmful but rather a tasty snack with mouth-lickering flavours.

Kurkure Snack Flavour – Kurkure Mumbai Chatpata

with one comment

Hey Everybody,

There is some cool information for all the Kurkure lovers. Kurkure has come up with a new Kurkure variant and that is the Kurkure Mumbai Chatpata. It has been launched in the West India market. The new Kurkure variant feels close to your heart if you are a Mumbaikar.

Mumbai is a great place to be and with Kurkure’s new flavour dedicated to Mumbai. I decided why not try the new Kurkure Mumbai Chatpata flavour. In the new Kurkure variant, the fried rice and corn sticks are flavoured with mild spices, pepper, chillies and a dash of fennel.

We use all these ingredients in our daily kitchen, therefore the New Kurkure variant is completely safe for consumption and has no harmful effects on the body. Kurkure is a safe snack and so Kurkure is not dangerous.

Could not get the picture of the new Kurkure packet. If anyone does, please share it here? Till then, even I will find one.

Kurkure Masala Munch – Kurkure Tea-Time Snack

with 9 comments

Hi Everybody,

I finally am writing about the different Kurkure flavors. We will start with the Original flavor and that is Kurkure Masala Munch.

Kurkure Masala Munch

As the name suggests, it is a masala flavor. Every bite of it is filled with a mixture of rich masala that makes you go gaga over this delicious tea-time snack.

Lately, there have been rumors doing some rounds that there is plastic in Kurkure. In reality, all this is just wrong. Yesterday, my husband came back from work and I was in the kitchen preparing tea and some snacks for him. What do I see when I come out of the kitchen? He is munching Kurkure at the comfort of a sofa. And I was happy to see that he did not believe in the recent Kurkure rumour.

But, I don’t understand how can people believe in rumors that have no authoritative base. The truth is there is no plastic in Kurkure and that Kurkure is not harmful to health.

You must be thinking why am I always stressing about the fact that there is no plastic in Kurkure. I have a reason for the same. Everyday, I see a number of visitors on my blog landing through keywords like “plastic in kurkure”, “kurkure plastic”, etc. This clearly means that there are people who still believe that there is plastic in Kurkure, which is not true.

Kurkure is made from edible ingredients including rice meal, corn meal, gram meal, salt, edible oils, etc. All these ingredients are used by us in our daily kitchen. For sure, I do make use of such ingredients while cooking and so do you.  (To know more about the ingredients used in Kurkure, check this post Kurkure Ingredients.) Then why believe in such rumors. Rather enjoy Kurkure, it is one of the most famous evening snack in India.

Coming back to our Kurkure Masala Munch flavor, you can try different recipes with your Kurkure Masala Munch.
