Kurkure Plastic Rumours – Baseless Lies Says AIIMS

with one comment

Hey Everybody,

I have a piece of information to share with all my readers on the blog. AIIMS (i.e. The ALL INDIA INSTITUTE of MEDICAL SCIENCES) has issued a letter that the Kurkure plastic lies or the ‘kurkure contains plastic’ rumour that has been making rounds online are nothing, but baseless rumours. A Doctor at AIIMS has clearly stated that he has not issued any note which states that, “Don’t eat Kurkure because it contains plastic. If you don’t believe burn Kurkure, and you can see plastic melting.”

I believe many of you must have received such spam forwarded chain mails and most of you must have believed it to be true as well. But, after a letter from AIIMS; you need not believe in such rumours. It means Kurkure is a completely safe snack for consumption.

You can check out the AIIMS letter that clears the Kurkure plastic rumour at http://bit.ly/KurkureAIIMS.

I read it on a blog somewhere, and it aptly applies here as well: Kurkure in Plastic (pack) but no Plastic in Kurkure!!

Before continuing this post further, I tasted it again so I can give you a true review of the packet. Believe me, every Kurkure snack stick in the packet tastes like heaven. It is utterly delicious, I had the entire snack packet all myself. The green chutney flavor in Kurkure snack is what distinguishes it and it is just awesome.

Kurkure is made from edible ingredients including rice meal, corn meal, gram meal, salt, edible oils and seasonings. But there is no plastic in Kurkure.

So you can enjoy munching Kurkure Green Chutney Rajasthni Style to the fullest and not believe in the recent Kurkure rumor that it contained plastic.

Also, have you ever tried any recipe with the Kurkure Green Chutney Rajasthani Style, I didn’t get a chance as I was busy eating the snack. But in case any of you have tried it, do share it here? I will share my recipe soon after I try it as well?

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.

Sharing one with you all here:
1. Apply Mayo on a Footlong Bun.

2. Add finely chopped onions, capsicum, tomatoes & vinegar soaked cucumber, salt & paper to taste.

3. Top it with Kurkure Masala Munch.

4. Add melted cheese.

5. Design it with ketchup and mustard sauce.
