Introduction of modern equipment for cooking of langar


Recommended Posts

Dear All

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa

Waheguru ji ke fateh.

I am a qualified chef by profession with over 13-14 years of experience, And I was previleged to contribute my expertise in project Langar 2012 http://www.unitedsikhs.org/langgar2012/ . This uprala was actualy done by United Sikhs .org and I was given the responsibility to bring in idea in which we are able to serve langar to all the wel lwishers, and visitors those who gathered to support "Bhai fauja singh ji " ( A 101 year old Marathon runner ) on is relay of Torch in stratford London During London Olympics 2012. This time we were not preparing langar for only sikh coimmunity or for gurdwara visitors. This time we were going out of our cordon and was serving langar every individual from different backgrounds gahthered there to watch the relay of torch on that day. It was a huge amount of crowd estimated to around 40,000+ people to arrive. details of the event are given in the web link posted.

During this event I had to visit various Gurdwaras to demonstrate the Vege-Roti Rolls and I realised each gurdwara is preparing huge quantity of langar for its regular sangat and with 'guru-ki-meher' during weekends the numbers are doubled o reven multiplied several times. And I have seen the langrees ( person assigned by gurdwara committee to prepare langar ) along with voluntary sewadaars moving these humungous pots and pans here and there for preparation of dal-sabzi or even chawal.

And after observing all this I just thought if we can use some professional equipments such as Tilting pans, Deep fryer, or a pressure boiler they can make cooking of langar a bit more convenient, time and energy saving also as these equipments take half the time of our regular cooking methods. Pics of these equipments are attached please have a look and post your opinion on thispost-39240-0-51757900-1358541265_thumb.jpost-39240-0-11682400-1358541281.pngpost-39240-0-77324500-1358541308.jpg. These equipments can be handled all at once by one person and are very easy to operate and clean as most of the are plumbed with a swivel water tap for cleaning and for water supply for cooking. they do not ask a lot of maintenance. most of these equipments can servive a decade without a penny spent on them if handled properly . The tilting pan is suitable for cooking large quantity of dal or sabzi etc it can also be used for frying purees and all. the fryer is ideal for pakoras and samosa, and the boiler is ideal for cooking rice and boiling of vegetables

Hope nobody mis-understands me as a salesman for theses equipment I am just bringing in an idea to make the life of langris a bit easy and focussed. If the Almighty akalpurakh permits then very soon we will do the sewa of one of these equipments in one of the busy gurdwara sahebs of east London, which will work as example for sangat to see and experience and once successfull we will take it to rest of the gudwaras where they do high volume of langar or even we can encourage wealthy gurdwaras to invest in these equipments to utilize the advancement of technology of cooking large volumes in these Gurdwaras.

I am just trying to bring some new Ideas from the expertise of my profession but if it has hutr anybody's sentiments ot religious beliefs in any way, then its purely unintentional and highly regretted.
