London: The world record for the largest samosa has been created in London. The enormous snack, weighing in at 153.1 kg, was made by a team of Muslim Aid volunteers at the East London Mosque on Tuesday, the Evening Standard newspaper reported.

After claiming their official Guinness World Record, the team distributed the gigantic 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".

"We wanted to make a larger-than-ever version of this popular snack 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," Muslim Aid's Zac Hussain, said.

A Guinness World Records spokesperson said, "This is an impressive achievement by Muslim Aid and a lot of hard work and determination has gone into this attempt to ensure its success."
