60 Indian chefs worked together last weekend to create a 13 tonne (28,600 pounds) biryani in an attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
Three cranes dumped 3,000 kilos of Basmati rice, 85 kilos of chilli peppers, 1,200 litres of oil and 3,650 kilos of vegetables into a giant
vat at a New Delhi sports stadium in the presence of a Guinness observer.
The cooks threw “a pinch of salt” weighing 86 kilos into the 16-foot (4.87-metre) deep steel vat, organiser Gurnam Arora said.
The sponsors used a hose to pour 6,000 litres of water into the vat and sprinkled 10 kilos of exotic spices and aromatic condiments to prepare the tangy biryani, Arora said the dish would be divided and trucked to city orphanages once Ishikawa certified the weighing of the cooked biryani, garnished with carrots and 750 kilos of creamy yogurt, Arora said.
Unfortunatly, there is no listing in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest biryani. via
