A nine-year-old boy, Hayan Abdulla of Feroke, Kerala, has entered the Asia Book of Records and the India Book of Records by cooking 172 dishes in just one hours. The dishes included biryani, juices, pancakes, dosas, salads, milk shakes and chocolates.
The competition took place online due to COVID-19 regulations.
The boy from Kerala, who has now entered the Asia Book of Records, developed an interest in cooking when he was only four.
“He showed interest in cooking and began helping me in the kitchen,” The New Indian Express quoted Rasha Abdulla, Hayan’s mother, as saying.
Hayan’s father Hashnas Abdulla is from Payyoli and mother is from Feroke. He belongs to a family that runs a chain of restaurants in Chennai.
“My family noticed that I cook fast. Then I thought why not work on it and be different. For the past one week, I have been recording the time of my cooking. There were no special preparations for the competition,” said Hayan, who is a Class III student of Sherwood Hall Senior Secondary School in Chennai.
Hayan owns a YouTube channel called Hayan Delicacies which helps people with recipes of various dishes in English, Malayalam and Tamil. Although he is passionate about cooking, he aspires to become a pilot. He also dreams of setting up a pasta bar.
