Indian chefs set world record by cooking 918 kg khichdi

After popularising yoga, India on Saturday made an attempt to market the ubiquitous khichdi to an international audience as a super food that symbolised the country's culture of unity in
diversity.

A 50-member team led by chef Sanjeev Kapoor entered the Guinness Book of World Records by cooking 918 kg of khichdi on the sidelines of the World Food India event.

Besides rice and moong dal, ancient grains unique to the sub-continent such as jowar, bajra, ragi and amaranth and a variety of vegetables were steam cooked in a giant kadhai (wok), which was specially designed for the occasion.
