East London Mosque breaks record for world’s biggest samosa

East London Mosque has broken the record for the world’s biggest samosa.

The samosa, weighing in at 153kg, was made by a team of Muslim Aid volunteers on Tuesday. After claiming their official Guinness World Record, the team distributed the samosa to homeless people around Whitechapel.

Members of the mosque said they decided to make the samosa to highlight the “generosity of Muslim people during religious festivals like Eid.”

Muslim Aid’s Zac Hussain, explained: “We wanted to make a larger-than-ever version of this popular food to demonstrate visually how people of the Muslim faith work tirelessly throughout the year, and particularly during Eid, doing charitable acts to support the unfortunate in the community around them and further afield.

“The samosa will feed the homeless near our offices in London. Meanwhile, donations via Muslim Aid will feed hundreds of thousands in the developing world.”

​Eid-ul-Adha will take place this year on Friday September 1.
