Recently, a viral video on social media has grasped the viewers; it is of a gold and silver-plated paan! Yes, you heard us! If you don’t believe that such a combination exists- then allow us to introduce you to it.
In a video posted by Instagram user @thegreatindianfoodie, we can see a man preparing the paan. He firsts adda katha, masala, rose paste, chandan paste, and other ingredients of a paan on a leaf. Then he tops it three silver sheets. Above that, he adds what seems to be powdered coconut, a few candied pieces, lots of gulkand and closes the pan. Finally, he puts the gold sheet on the outside and serves it. According to @thegreatindianfoodie, a piece of this paan costs INR 760. Take a look at the video here:

Despite this video going popular, many people have added sarcastic comments regarding the price of the paan. One user said, “Rahne do bhai mai 5 rupya wale mai khush hoon (Please let it be, I am happy in Rs. 5 paan only).” Another user said, “That gold paper cost rupees 210 only, and the cost of a single paan is 5 to 10 rupees. And they are selling it for 760, mehenga chuna.”
Many other people have also said that this paan doesn’t look worth spending so much money on.
