Celebrity Chef Ranveer Brar's first Restaurant, Kashkan, is going viral on social media because of its unique dishes. The Kashkan restaurant which is based in Dubai is offering “24-carat gold tadka dal,” arguably making it the most expensive dal in the world.

The viral video shows a man serving the dal in a bowl inside a wooden box, added with 24-carat dusted gold with ghee. This special dish is known as "Dal Kashkan" which is one of the most exclusive food items and it is priced at 58 dirhams or around Rs 1300.

Mehul Hingu shared a video of 'Dal Kashkan' on his Instagram account 'streetfoodrecipe'. The server at the restaurant displays the gold dust being offered to the bowl and then he carefully adds it to the dal prepared with premium spices and ghee and it is kept in a wooden box. The server explains the speciality of the dish to the customer.

The viral video on the platform has garnered over 9 million views and 2 lakh likes on Instagram.

How do fans react?

The video has grabbed eyeballs from all across the world and many people are reacting to the post.

One of the social media users wrote, “Welcome to heavy metal poisoning.”

"Gold doesn't get absorbed by the body. So this is just an EXTRA way of pooping gold," another user wrote.

One of the users wrote jokingly, “So this dal was preserved in this ‘Sanduk’ for how many years ???”

Is it safe to eat?

Many people showed their concern about the edibility of gold. Assuring you that it is an edible gold when taken as a garnish or decorative element, it is deemed safe for consumption in smaller quantities. It is not absorbed by the digestive system. However, the consumption of this dal in large quantities is still not advisable due to a lack of comprehensive research on its long-term effects. Most importantly, its negligible nutritional benefits.
