An Ottery businesswoman is going for world record glory by making 500 samosas in 24 hours.
Tina Chauhan-Challis will make each individual treat from scratch starting from 6pm tomorrow (Friday) until Saturday evening.
Her efforts will be filmed on a fixed camera and sent to Guinness World Record adjudicators, with the samosas she makes being sold to raise money for an Ottery cause.
Tina said: “There is a world record for the biggest ever samosa but nothing for the largest amounts of samosas. I will do over 500, I know it.
“It’s not just making a samosa, it’s making the mix from scratch which can take five to six hours.

“My game plan is to prepare all the mixes and fillings and once the fillings are done they can be cooled down and I can start rolling the pastry out. On Saturday morning I will start making up the samosas really to start selling them.
“No-one is allowed to help me out, unless it’s the washing up.”
