Oli Khan, a Senior Vice President of Bangladesh Caterers Association and a Director of the UKBCCI, along with his team broke the Guinness world record for the largest onion bhaji in a charity event to feed hundreds of homeless people.
On 4th February officials including Ms Paulina Sapinska from Guinness World Records were present at the London Muslim Centre to see the mega-bhaji weigh in at a whopping 175.7kg.
The previous record of 102kg had stood since 2011.
Award-winning chef Khan, 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 205kg of onions, 50kg of flour, 2kg of coriander and 6kg of garlic and ginger paste.
On confirmation of 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 will go towards the East London Mosque Trust, a charity supporting local good causes.
