Who doesn’t love flavourful and delicious ‘Biryani’? We all do, right. While India has some awesome varieties of Biryani, but for a change today, we are going to talk about the most extravagant and expensive Biryani in the world. Yes, there’s a restaurant that serves the costliest Biryani in the world and it looks no less than a royal treat with the Midas touch!
One plate biryani cost 1,000 Dhiram.
A huge as a mountain, one plate of this royal Biryani, will cost 1,000 Dhiram (Dubai currency), which in Indian Rupees will cost up to 20,000. Hah! It's a whopping price. It is available at Bombay Borough, a luxury dining space in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) which has British-era bungalow-inspired interiors.
Why is it so expensive?
‘The Royal Gold Biryani’ enriched with 23 karats edible gold. The 3 kg Biryani takes 45 minutes for preparation and comes in a giant metallic plate. This Biryani is served in three variations of rice including Chicken Biryani Rice, Keema Rice, and White and Saffron rice, topped with baby potatoes and boiled eggs. This aromatic meal also includes three varieties of chicken grills-Malai chicken, Rajputana Murgh Sula, and Chicken Meatballs.
The dish also includes Lamb Chops and Lamb Seekh Kebab, garnished with mint, roasted cashew, pomegranate, and fried onion.
The enormous platter is complemented with three side dishes that include Nihari Salan, Jodhpuri Salan, Badami sauce topped with almond and Pomegranate Raita. It also has a wide selection of exquisite sauces and curries that that is served in a thaal (a large, flat platter for serving food), which serves for 4 to 6 people that can be prebooked or ordered on the spot.
We haven’t tried the Biryani, but from the pictures, it looks extremely royal as its name and yes, it’s worth a try to tingle your taste buds and of course, if your pocket allows it. Visiting Dubai, then this can definitely be on your food list.
