'World's biggest naan bread' made by Hampshire firefighters

  • 7-9-2014

A huge naan bread made by a team of firefighters, led by a fire officer called Dave Curry, is believed to be the biggest the world has ever seen.

The giant Indian bread, weighing 26kg (57lb 5oz) and measuring 3.79m (12ft 5in) by 1.4m (4ft 7in), was created at an event in Hampshire on Sunday.

Footage of the record attempt at Eastleigh Mela will now be sent to Guinness for official verification.

The current record naan, which weighed 9.5kg (20lb 15oz), was made in 2008.

That colossal creation was cooked by Loblaw Companies Limited in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and measured 2.89m (9ft 6in) by 1m (3ft 4in).

The Hampshire firefighters' enormous naan bread, which was sold for £3 with a curry, helped raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, Water Wells Project and Hampshire Hurricanes.

It was created with the help of Badi Mirchi and Sanjha restaurants.
