If you see the ingredients list on packet of Kurkure (purchased from market), you will find Palm Oil in the list. Now palm oil has a very bad reputation because its very very high on saturated fats. So its a BIG NO from my side and therefore I prefer making them at home in a very good quality of oil.

Step 8: Keep the flame to medium for frying of kurkure. Kurkure can explode if you fry them on high flame or in a very hot oil. So make sure you keep flame on medium. Fry them for good 10 minutes.

When you place them you will see a lot of bubbles in oil but once they get fried properly the bubbles will reduce significantly. Please cover the pan with a lid or plate to avoid popping of hot oil droplets and to protect your face against popping droplets of oil (in case).
