 Largest falafel: Jordan sets world record (PICS & VIDEO)

  The previous Guinness world record for the largest falafel was set last year in the US when a 23.95kg ball of falafel was made at the Santa Clarita Valley Jewish Food and Cultural Festival in California.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest serving of falafel: 5,173 kg (11,404 lb 8 oz), achieved by Chef Ramzi Choueiri and the students of Al-Kafaat University (all Lebanon) in Beirut, Lebanon.
  
  The world's largest falafel was later offered as a starter during an iftar meal attended by 600 people.

  "We invited people to attend this remarkable event. It is a nice opportunity for children and adults to watch the process of making the largest falafel," said Samya Bader, a spokesperson from the Landmark hotel.

 "It is a great honour for us. We are proud. Falafel is a part of our tradition and heritage and I am glad to see that we proved that," said a participant at the event who did not want to be named.

  According to a statement issued by the organisers, the world's largest falafel was made using 80kg of chickpeas, 5kg of onions, 2kg of fresh parsley and coriander, 1.2kg of garlic, and was deep fried in 350 litres of vegetable oil.

 "The falafel is a traditional Arabic food and so naturally this record should be held here. As a local hotel proud of its Jordanian roots, the Landmark Amman wanted to mark this special time of year by doing something truly extraordinary and bringing the falafel record to Jordan," the statement quoted Landmarks Hotel Company General Manager Aysar Batayneh as saying.
