No doubt some of you will be receiving the traditional Xmas gift of the latest edition of The Guinness Book of Records. Here are a few concerning Indian food:
•Largest Naan Bread - the largest naan bread in the world was created in July this year. A team of firefighters got together with two local restaurants in Hampshire to create a naan 3.79m long and 1.4m wide. It weighed a whopping 26kg.
•Highest Poppadom Stack – Manchester curry chef Nahim Aslam put together the largest stack of poppadoms at the Indian Ocean restaurant in March 2011. It was measured at 1.57m tall and contained no fewer than 1,075 poppadoms.
•Most Naans Made in One Hour – not content with that, the Indian Ocean also holds the record for the most naan breads made in one hour. A team of five chefs made no less than 640 in that time, easily smashing the previous Guinness World Record of 400. The breads, together with enough curry to feed 300 people, were donated to a local Salvation Army hostel.
•Largest Curry– another UK chef created the largest recorded curry in the world in July 2005. It weighed a mighty 10.3 tonnes!
