Madurai woman prepares 134 dishes in half an hour, sets records | Chennai News – Times of India


MADURAI: A Madurai woman turned her cooking skill into a record by making 134 dishes in just half an hour and registering her name in the Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records. Indira Ravichandran, 41 of Thirumangalam, on Monday, broke the record of a 17-year-old Kerala boy, who had prepared 172 dishes in one hour.
Ravichandran, who lives in Visakhapatnam with her family, is a homemaker and her husband is a naval officer. She said that she has a knack for cooking and could cook many meals within minutes. “My husband encouraged me to attempt at setting a record with my talent. I started practicing from June 10,” she said.
She informed the officials of the Indian Book of Records about a month ago and they fixed the date for August 23. As Thirumangalam is her native, she decided to do it here. The record for the cooking most number of dishes in less time was set by the Kerala boy. “I hoped to cook 86 dishes in half an hour, which would help me to break this record and ended up making almost double of that,” she said.
According to the rules of the book of records, only cooking has to be done during the given time and all the preparations including chopping can be done in advance. The items she had cooked included 16 varieties of cupcakes, 15 types of idlies, 15 kozhukattais, chicken biryani, sambar, a variety of pakodas, fish curry, chutneys and raitas. Then she whipped up about 16 types of lassies, masala dosa, podi dosa, egg dosa and others. She began at 10.25 am and completed 134 dishes by 10.55 am. The cost of the ingredients came up to about Rs 15,000.
Cooking was done with the help of three gas stoves and an oven. Adjudicator for Asia Book for Records and India Book of Records, Vivek Nair, who was present, certified Ravichandran for her achievement.
