Hungry kya? Game for a really, really, really big shawarma? Wish granted! Wrapz, in association with students of St Josephs College of Residency Road will make the Longest Chicken Sharwama Roll on December 19. “A sharwama has been a staple for the West Asians and is a favourite street food in India. Bangalore which has become the capital for wraps, prompted us to take on this particular food to create a world record. Nobody has tried this ever,” said Dr MA Babu, Executive Director, Wrapz.
Hundred students will be participating in preparing the shawarma. “It will be 164.3 feet long. The width of the sharwama will be 23cms. Fifty kilograms of chicken will be used as the filling. Hundred and five bread slices 55cm in length and 35cm wide will be interlocked,” explained Babu. In the past, Australia and Dubai have created a sharwama records at 26 and 30 feet respectively.
About 90 people will be on the job. “We will start 11 am on the 19th and expect the whole preparation to last five hours,” he said. Officials from the Limca Book of Records will be there to certify the shwarma.
The 165 feet single roll sharwama will be lifted at once by 90 students, who will be supported by chefs and supporting staff. “We are currently practicing for the D-Day. Students are learning about the mixing before they are set on the stage,” said Babu. He added, “Father Daniel of St Josephs College of Science from Residency Road will be the Chief Measuring Guide and will authorise the event.”
According to the World Record rule, the food should be edible. “The sharwarma will be displayed for 30 minutes. We are inviting orphans from St Patricks Church to enjoy a meal that will create history,” he concluded.
