Himachal makes World Record by preparing largest quantity of khichdi

Tattapani (Mandi): Himachal Pradesh has made it to the Guiness Book of World Records for preparing the largest quantity of khichdi that had to be tilted out of its enormous container with a crane in order to be served to devotees on the occasion of Makar Sankranti on Tuesday. A team of 25 chefs cooked 1995 kg of the dish at Tattapani in Mandi district in a vessel weighing 270 kg, with the dimensions of four feet depth and seven feet diameter, that was especially acquired from Jagadhari in Haryana, said the state’s tourism director Yunus Khan. The chefs’ team from Holiday Home hotel in Shimla took five hours — from 4 AM to 9 AM — to prepare the stew, said deputy general manager of the hotel Nand Lal Sharma. Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur accepted the certificate on behalf of the state’s Tourism and Civil Aviation department from Guiness World Records for preparing the largest-ever ‘bean and rice’ dish.
