“Initially I thought it would be a piece of cake: stuff it together, tie up the end and fry it. When I realized there was not a single pot in the country that could hold that weight, we had to get something tailor made,” he said. 

The samosa took around 15 hours for cooking and was distributed to local homeless via the Salvation Army in hundreds of portions.
