A 12-member team from UP’s Maharajganj district might have made the ‘world’s largest samosa’. The samosa weighed 350 Kg and cost Rs 50,000.
They used three quintals of potatoes, two quintals of white flour, 20 litre cooking oil, five kg salt and 20 kg of other stuffing to make the samosa.

Team leader Ritesh Soni said that the purpose for the same was to bring attention to their neglected district.
“We want to put Maharajganj on the world map. Setting the world record will serve that purpose to an extent. It will draw the government’s attention to Maharajganj, which has been neglected on the development front. Here, we do not have proper roads and pure drinking water. Round-the-clock power supply is still a distant dream,” he told HT

The current record is held by Bradford College (UK) which made a samosa weighing 110.8 kg. The UP team will report their achievement to officials of the Guinness Book of World Records.
