In East London, the world’s biggest samosa was made in a mosque. It not just got itself a name in Guinness World Record but the best part is that the samosa was fed to poor homeless people of the area.
Coming to the details of the samosa, its weight was 153 kg. It was cooked by Muslim Aid volunteer team at a mosque in East London.
The samosa was distributed to displaced citizens around Whitechapel after getting registered officially as Guinness World Record.
Also, residents from Booth House, the biggest men hostel in London joined the party and enjoyed the treat.
The reason members of the mosque decided to cook the biggest sasmosa was to highlight “generosity of Muslim people during religious festivals like Eid”.
Zac Hussain member of Muslim Aid said, “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.” “The samosa will feed the homeless near our offices in London. Meanwhile, donations via Muslim Aid will feed hundreds of thousands in the developing world.”
The celebrations of Eid-ul-Azha will begin from September 1st Friday. Eid Ul Azha is the festival of sacrifice and it is the Eid in which it is encouraged that we help those in need.
A spokesperson from Guinness World Records said: “This is an impressive achievement by Muslim Aid and a lot of hard work and determination has gone into this attempt to ensure its success.” “We are pleased to welcome them to the Guinness World Records family.”
