Did you know gold is believed to boost health and improve cognitive skills? We’re not talking about wearing gold, but eating it. Gold particles in food have been part of Indian royalty, Ayurveda and Egyptian history. In the medieval ages, gold leaf was used as a coating on medicinal tablets. The purest form of gold, 24 carats or 23 carats, when consumed in small quantities can improve mental health, boost immunity, fight heart diseases and also act as an aphrodisiac. Today, gold is not just used for medicinal reasons, but as a way to give food a royal touch. Dubai is home to the world’s most expensive biryani topped with 23-carat gold. But you don’t need to travel all the way to Dubai for a dish topped with gold, just head to Gastronomica In South Delhi. The 24 Carat Gold Chicken Tikka will give you maharaja-maharani feels!
