Community effort: Mohamed Khaled stirring the 'bubur lambuk' with participants during the cookout in Pasir Gudang.
JOHOR BARU: Piping hot porridge in 350 large pots, prepared by 1,500 cooks and for distribution in 52,500 portions. The feat has put Pasir Gudang in the Malaysia Book of Records for the largest bubur lambuk cookout ever.
The event’s organising chairman Norwati Abdul Manap said the packs of spicy porridge were distributed to surau, mosques, hospitals and homes in Pasir Gudang.
Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin helped to stir the porridge in the cauldrons before the handing over of a plaque to denote the feat by Malaysia Book of Records executive officer Zulkifli Md Zin at the Pasir Gudang Stadium here on Saturday.
The participants began cooking the porridge – a much sought-after delicacy during Ramadan – at 8am yesterday.
By 11am, the record of 270 pots cooked in Terengganu in 2009 was broken.
Norwati said 5kg of rice, 2kg of meat, onions and coconut milk, 500g of spices and 250g of garlic went into each pot of bubur lambuk.
“We are happy to have broken the record. Above all else, we fostered closer ties between Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Norwati.
Mohamed Khaled commended the participants for their effort and encouraged more of such events to be held so that the people could mingle and learn about each other’s culture.
