An award-winning Bangladeshi chef has broken the Guinness Book world record for the largest onion bhaji in a charity event to feed hundreds of homeless people.
Oli Khan popularly known as the Curry King of Britain cooked a mega-onion-bhaji weighing in at a whopping 175.7kg at the London Muslim Centre in presence of officials Ms Paulina Sapinska from Guinness World Records. The previous record of 102kg had stood since 2011. Khan, who was supported by Just Eat, used the record-breaking bhaji to feed more than 500 people, including over 300 homeless people.
Khan’s team took 8 hours to create the bhaji, which included 205 Kgs of onions, 50 Kgs of flower, 2kgs of coriander and 6kg of garlic and ginger paste.
Speaking about his achievement, Khan said, “This wouldn’t have been possible without my team, who are all present with me today to share in this amazing victory. This isn’t just a win for us, it’s a win for our nation Great Britain, which we are proud to represent!”
Money raised from the event will go towards the East London Mosque Trust, a charity supporting local causes.
