Lebanon makes 10-tonne hummus

india Updated: May 14, 2010 02:13 IST

Lebanon has claimed another victory in the continuing battle with Israel over which country can make the largest plate of hummus. More than 300 chefs set the new record, which the Lebanese say is their national dish, in the presence of a Guinness World Records representative who confirmed its weight at 10,452 kg.

Hummus is a dip made of chick peas, sesame paste, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. The chefs mixed the ingredients together in a giant plate which itself claimed a record for the largest earthenware dish.
