The sizzling dosa arriving on the plate has a guilt-edged gleam, crunching with every bite with the spicy chutney.

Culinary connoisseurs have been savouring the real golden dosa made of 23.5 carot edible gold leaf at Karampodi, an authentic Telugu restaurant opened on Ugadi.

The gold dosa has been “reasonably priced”, said ex-Google employee and owner of Karampodi Shyam Jampala.

While restaurants in Chennai and Bengaluru have been offering gold dosa for some time, they charge well over Rs 1100 for the delicacy, Jampala added. Prepared from gold, Swarna Basma –the basis for the gold leaf- is an Ayurvedic medicine capable of curing several health issues from infertility to infirmity and muscular  weakness, said Ajay, a partner at the restaurant.

The owners said Karampodi has been reviving some of the age-old homemade Telugu dishes forgotten over the years. Having collected 400 grandma recipes, it standardised some and trimmed the list to 199 dishes.

Currently, Karampodi may be one of the 2881 restaurants in Hyderabad, but the owners have plans to open restaurant chains in many places across the country.
For the first time, the restaurant also offers non-veg breakfast.
