As many around the world feel the pinch of the Covid-19 pandemic, one restaurant in Dubai is offering its customers the chance to eat one of the world's most expensive biryanis, topped with edible gold.

Dubbed the Royal Gold Biryani, the Dhs 1000 ($272) platter comes complete with dishes flavours from around India, as well as 23-karat edible gold.

"This heavenly plate consists of Gold Leaf kababs- The Kashmiri lamb seekh kababs, old Delhi Lamb chops, Rajput chicken kababs, Mughlai koftas, and malai chicken roast served on a bed of saffron-infused biryani, complimented by a wide selection of our exquisite sauces, curries, and raitas," Bombay Borough wrote on its Instagram page.

"It is the exuberant journey to experience Royalty. This royal meal is served in a Thaal and the Gold Biryani is garnished with 23 karat edible Gold. 
Need we say gold more?"

The meal - which serves up to six people - was launched by Indian restaurant Bombay Borough on Wednesday to celebrate its first anniversary.

Biryani, a dish originating from the Indian subcontinent, is a popular meal in the Gulf, where both expats and locals share a love of the fragrant rice meal.

The dish has a long history in south and central Asia, where historical accounts indicate it was cooked for Mughal emperors, refined by Persian chefs and even served to Alexander the Great upon his conquest of Persia.
