Fluffy parotta, or maida paratha, has always been a staple in the city of Madurai. But when all the eateries were locked in the past due to coronavirus, the restaurant owners desired to do something distinct to attract people back. In the same sequence, a restaurant chain in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, has started selling parotta or paratha in the shape of a protective face mask to attract customers and raise awareness about Covid-19. Do you know their initiative gained immense popularity in a short period? In such a situation, KL Kumar came up with a unique idea in Madurai. Now he is serving face mask shape parotta in his hotel.
