The Logical Indian Punjab

August 12th, 2016 / 4:38 PM

Nearly 5 million people attend the Hola Mohalla festival in Punjab’s Anandpur Sahib. Around 200 Langars are held here collectively, the largest among them being the Langar at Shri Keshgarh Sahib. The gigantic food figures involved in this Langar will leave you amazed.


To cook food for the massive number of people, the Gurudwara’s kitchens store:

1. 18,000 Kg of Wheat
2. 29,000 Kg of Pulses
3. 13,000 Kg of Rice
4. 25,700 Kg of Sugar
5. 19,605 Kg of Ghee

The langar hall of the Gurdwara uses 2200 kgs of vegetables during the festival – which is  enough to feed an urban household for over 7 years!

It is hard to imagine the enormous amount of effort that goes into preparing food for the sole purpose of ensuring that every visitor is well fed, and don’t have to leave hungry. The hard work and dedication of the heroes working in these MegaKitchens ensure that they achieve such milestones. The driving force behind such MegaKitchens are people who tirelessly and assiduously work behind the scenes, to feed the people of India.

India has always been known for its culinary skills, its spices and condiments. And yes, we are also known for our hospitality towards our guests. This episode is an attempt to let people know about one of the biggest kitchens of India that serves lakhs of people, to recognise the efforts of the hardworking faces behind such gigantic kitchens that not only serve food but also love.

National Geographic’s series “India’s Mega Kitchens” premieres this Independence day to highlight the hard work and dedication that goes behind these kitchens and celebrate their spirit, their huge scale, their technology, and the impact they have. This is a tribute to the relentless food magicians that make a Herculean task look so simple. It is an effort to recognise the hard work and labour of people that strive for keeping alive the spirit of India’s hospitality.

Enjoy the show!
