In November 2017, 800 kg khichdi was prepared at the World Food India event in a bid to create world record and popularise it as brand India food globally. It was cooked by celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor.
A giant 'kadhai' (frying pan) of the capacity of 1,000 litres and 7 feet in diameter was used for slow steam-cooking of the khichdi.
A traditional Indian dish relished by both rich and poor, 'Khichdi' is prepared using rice, pulses, coarse cereals and spices.
