Last month, the world record for the largest samosa was created in London. The enormous snack, weighing a whopping 153.1 kg, was made by a team of Muslim Aid volunteers at the East London Mosque.

Members of the mosque said they decided to make the samosa to highlight the "generosity of Muslim people during religious festivals like Eid". After claiming their official Guinness World Record, the team distributed the gigantic samosa to homeless people around Whitechapel.

Here's a video of how the giant samosa was made.

Some of the ingredients that went into snack were 44 kg of flour and Indian spices, 100 kg potatoes and 25 kg of onions.

According to Guinness World Records, the team sourced a custom-made deep fryer to cook the samosa in 400 lts of oil.


A team of 12 volunteers who worked on the samosa took 15 hours to complete the dish.
