A mosque in East London has created the world’s biggest samosa

We want a slice of this action, and it’s all for a good cause…

A mosque in East London has created the world’s biggest samosa, which was then distributed among homeless people in the Whitechapel area.

The team of Muslim Aid volunteers assembled the huge samosa taking over fifteen hours with their efforts recognised by the Guinness Book of Records.

The team had to source a custom-made deep fat fryer for the attempt as the massive pastry would have have been too heavy to fit in regular commercially available one.

“We wanted to make a larger-than-ever version of this popular food 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,” said Muslim Aid’s Zac Hussain.

Once out of the oven, the samosa weighed over 153kg! We might need more than a knife and fork for this one…

The samosa consisted of 100 kg potatoes, 25 kg onion, 15 kg peas, plus 44 kg flour and traditional Indian spices.
