KUALA TERENGGANU: Terengganu's favourite keropok lekor has made its way into the Malaysia Book of Records.
All 479m of the traditional snack was showcased at the Bank Rakyat Carnival held at the Dataran Shahbandar on Saturday.
The keropok was made in three days using 1,200kg of flour and several types of fish.
Malaysia Book of Records representative Leona Paul said: “It broke the previous record of 200m displayed during the Pesta Terengganu in 2006. So this 479m of keropok lekor truly deserves its place in the record books.”
Over 20 people from the Industri Keropok Warisan Sdn Bhd led by managing director Mohd Zaman Muda and 20 students from Universiti Teknologi Mara students took part in preparing the keropok.
Mohd Zaman said it took them three days to mix the ingredients consisting of flour, selayang, tamban and lolong species of fish.
“The process to shape the keropok took two hours. Another three hours were needed to boil it,” he said.
Proceeds from the sale of the keropok will go to charity.
