Indian Chef Sanjeev Kapoor will try to make a World Record on 4th November 2017 by attempting to cook 800 kgs of Khichdi. The event will be held on India Gate lawns on one of the three days long “World Food India”.
The event is organized by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries in order to promote Indian cuisines internationally. Twitter bursted into reactions when “DNA” tweeted “Khichdi to be designated as India’s national food, announcement on November 4”.
Here is the tweet:

I hate #Khichdi. Worst choice for national dish (why do we even need one?). The only time one shd eat it is when you're ill.

Will Khichdi flavoured condoms now be the national contraceptive of India?

The penny drops. Khichdi is what our mothers give us to recover from illness. After DeMo and GST the economy is so sick, it needs khichdi.

I will allow #Khichdi to be declared as the national Dish of India only if roasted Papad is declared the national snack of India.

How to identify stupid – they will now start hating Khichdi and attack it as if Khichdi is their enemy.

I don't have a problem with Khichdi. I just want Jalebi to be the national dessert and distributed before every movie starts

Later Union Cabinet Minister for Food “Harsimrat Kaur Badal” tweeted and cleared doubts about Khichdi being the National Food.
Here is the Tweet:
Enough Khichdi cooked up on a fictitious 'National Dish’. It has only been put for a record entry in #WorldFoodIndia.
