Curry and naan team make it big

Have your say

A TEAM of firefighters, led by an officer called Dave Curry, are claiming a record for making the world’s largest naan bread.

The record-breaking naan, which measured nearly 12.5ft by 4.5ft and weighed 57lbs, was created by the group from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service at the Eastleigh Mela Indian festival on Sunday.

The naan was sold to the public with chicken curry to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, as well as the Water Wells Project and the Hampshire Hurricanes.

Deputy Chief Officer Curry said: “This was a genuine team effort, with great commitment shown by all involved.”

The previous record for the largest naan bread measured 9.4ft by 3.2ft and weighed 20lb 15oz.
