The Raj Bhog restaurant in Bangalore is witnessing large footfalls, since the debut of their latest delicacy, a gold-plated dosa, which is priced at a whooping Rs. 1,011. Diners are promised that they can tuck into one milligram of gold, spread out over 12 cm by 12 cm of pure gold foil. The gold is added to each dosa in the final wrap - very much like adding a thin sheet of cheese or butter while applying the finishing touches to the dish. Now you can have your 24 carat dosa and eat it too!
As Indian society becomes more affluent, the restaurant squarely aims at those who have the ability to spend on such fancies! The Gold plated dosa in Bangalore a huge hit. Of course there is a precedent. Some luxury sweet shops in India have long used thin silver foils to wrap their sweets.
The restaurant received a food safety certificate from the Bengaluru Corporation, and the gold foils are procured from an ISO certified company in the north Indian state of Rajasthan.They say there are no side effects with this type of dosai ……..but hey surely my wallet is going to look anorexic?
