Paratha lovers cannot resist a plate of 2 face mask parottas, shaped like two and three-ply masks, with two salnas and onion raita for Rs50. Then there’s the corona bonda which has onions sticking out from the bonda depicting coronavirus.

“The other day whem my son and I were walking on the road we saw many people not wearing face masks. That is when my son said adurai is famous for parotta. Why don’t we make it in the shape of a face mask to create awareness?” Kumar said. “I thought it was a brilliant idea and spoke to my parotta master.”
