  Tallest stack of poppadoms: Northampton chef sets world record (VIDEO)

Northampton, UK -- Tipu Rahman, a curry chef originally from Bangladesh, who runs the Tamarind Restaurant on Wellingborough Road in Northampton, spent two hours with his team of four chefs, cooking 1,280 poppadoms and used them to create a 5ft 8in (1.72m) stack of poppadoms, which sets
the new world record for the Tallest stack of poppadoms, according to the World Record Academy: stack of poppadoms world record set by Tipu Rahman

  The Guinness world record for the tallest stack of poppadoms measured 1.57 m (5 ft 1.8 in) and was achieved by Nahim Aslam of the Indian Ocean Restaurant (UK) in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, UK.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the tallest stack of pancakes; it measured 77 cm (2 ft 6 in) and was achieved by Paul Dedroog and Alfons Lowie (both Belgium), in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Belgium.
  Mr Rahman, who spent two hours cooking the poppadoms, said getting into the record books was a lifelong dream.

  "I've always thought about doing something like this," he said.

 "It is important for me and the Bangladeshi community as a whole.

 "I chose poppadoms because when you walk into an Indian restaurant that is the first thing that you would ask for and they can be made quickly."

  Four judges watched Mr Rahman, who won the title of the Indian Chef of the Year in 2009, at the restaurant.

  Mayor of Northampton Roger Conroy was on hand to witness the final poppadom being placed on the tower and said: "It's brilliant, an absolutely magnificent achievement for both Tipu and for Northampton. We have some excellent restaurants in Northampton who really do their bit for the community and today is a great example of that."

  Bobby Baidwan, an independent technical judge, measured the poppadom stack as it was being built.
