The world record for the largest samosa has been created in London.
This enormous snack, which was weighing around 153.1 kg, was made by a team of Muslim Aid volunteers at the East London Mosque on Tuesday, the Evening Standard newspaper reported.
The previous record of 110.8 kg was set by Bradford College in northern England in June 2012.
After claiming their official Guinness World Record, the team distributed this giant samosa to homeless people around Whitechapel.
Members of the mosque said they decided to make the samosa to highlight the generosity of Muslim people during their religious festivals like Eid.
Muslim Aid’s Zac Hussain, said: “They wanted to make a larger-than-ever version of this very popular Indian snack to demonstrate visually how people of the Muslim faith work tirelessly throughout the year, and particularly during Eid, doing charitable acts to support the unfortunate in the community around them and further afield.”
A Guinness World Records spokesperson said: “This is an extremely impressive achievement by Muslim Aid and a lot of hard work and determination has gone into this attempt to ensure its success.”
