Biryani is one of the most popular dishes in several countries and biryani lovers often go to any extent to experience certain special preparations of the saffron-flavoured rice dish. But will you spend Rs 20,000 for a plate of gold-plated biryani?
Known as the Royal Gold Biryani, the dish sells for 1,000 dirhams per plate. That’s approximately Rs 19,705.85 for a plate of biryani. And it comes plated with 23-carat gold leaf.
One plate of biryani consists of 3 kg worth of rice and meat. It comes with an assortment of curries and mets such as lamb chops, meatballs, grilled chicken and a variety of kebabs. The plate also consists of three types of rice – one of them is simple chicken biryani rice, the other keema rice while the third type is ‘white and saffron rice’.
While gold-plated biryani may sound a tad bit extravagant, it is nowhere near as outrageous as the latest trend of eating “strawberry biryani”. The experimental, fruity rendition of the dish went viral earlier last week after a Pakistani Twitter user shared images of a strawberry-infused biryani topped with cut up pieces of fruit.
