It is a fact well-known that Doonites have a soft corner for Dimsums, fondly called ‘Momos!’ And what better way to profess your love for the delicacy than making a record out of it! 

Well, this ingenious idea seems to have inspired the young and talented students of Graphic Era Deemed to be University to get their name inscribed in Limca Book of Records, the Indian equivalent of Guinness Book of World Records! 

On 6 May, 2022, a team of 26 students and staff members of the School of Hotel Management and Hospitality, led by Dr. Amar Dabral (HoD), prepared 624 varieties of dimsums at the same place in span of 1 hour 47 minutes, probably setting one of its kind record. 

The event was flagged off by Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Ghanshala, President, Graphic Era Educational Group at 11 am and what followed was a remarkable display of teamwork, excellence & mastery in the culinary arts. 

Out of the 624 varieties, 416 were purely vegetarian (with flavors ranging from spinach to beetroot) and 208 were non-vegetarian with chicken, mutton & eggs as key ingredients! Also, while Maida, Mandua, Missi, etc., were used to make dough, 10 types (each) of Indian, Continental and Chinese sauces were generously employed in the preparation of the delicious dumplings! 

The excitement, thrill and grandeur of the momentous event was also witnessed by renowned chefs: Mohsin Khan, Sunil Kumar and Yogesh Upreti.  

It was learnt that the astounding feat was preceded by a month long extensive research & planning. Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Ghanshala commented that such events not only empower the students with confidence in their abilities but also make them industry-ready. 

The entry of the feat has been sent for inclusion in the Limca Book of Records and if approved, this accomplishment shall be another feather in the Graphic Era’s cap! It is worth noting that the Department of Hotel Management and Hospitality has achieved such extraordinary milestones previously as well. It already has its name registered in Guinness Book of World Records twice and the Limca Book of World Records four times.
