Nagpur Chef prepares 3000 kgs of Khichdi to set world record
Chef, Vishu Manohar, prepared 3000 kilograms of Khichdi in one vessel in Nagpur on Sunday to set a new World Record. He prepared this Indian dish to mark the World Food Day on October 16.
Chef, Manohar, wants Khichdi to be declared as the national dish. It is because people eat khichdi at every stage. It is also regarded as the most healthy and affordable meal.
Union Minister for Road Transportation and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, was also present at the event and congratulated Chef Manohar for his attempt.
According to the media reports, ingredients used in the making of 3000 kg of khichdi were 125 kgs of moong dal (lentils), 275 kgs of rice, 150 kgs of chana dal (pulses), 150 kgs of ghee (clarified butter), and 3000 kgs of water.
