Hindu Temple In Indian Sweet World Record Bid

Devotees at a Hindu temple in the UK are hoping to have set a brand new Guinness World Records™ record for the biggest Indian sweet (Churma Ladoo).
According to media reports it took three chefs and 23 volunteers from the Shree Hindu Temple in Leicester to make the sweet over four days which they claim weighs an enormous 551kg (87st).
Guinness World Records experts are currently examining evidence submitted by the temple.
The recipe for the ladoo included 150kg of whole wheat flour, 100kg of ghee as well as poppy seeds, cashew nuts, almonds and cardamoms powder.
The temple plans to offer it to 5,500 people during the religious event of Ganesh Puran.
The ball-shaped sweet, normally the size of an apple, is said to be Hindu deity Lord Ganesh’s favourite food.
