As the coronavirus cases across the country continue to rise authorities have been constantly creating awareness and appealing people to stay home and stay safe. Those who are stepping out of their homes for work have to compulsorily wear masks and maintain social distance. A restaurant in Madurai, Tamil Nadu went a bit too far in spreading awareness about wearing masks. They have started making parottas in the shape of face masks, dosas in the shape of Coronavirus and also bhajiyas. Ummm, now we don't know if it's tasty or not, but it definitely appeals to make awareness, even as you are out to eat. Pictures and videos of these 'corona' special food items are up on social media. Tamil Nadu is India's 2nd State to Cross 1 Lakh COVID-19 Cases, Death Toll 1,385.

Temple City, one of the biggest restaurant chains in Madurai has intertwined the love for parottas with creating COVID-19 awareness. As reported in The Hindu owner K. L. Kumar came up with the idea and implemented it within a day. It hardly took any effort to make the shape of masks and the aim is to make people realise the importance of having face masks. Mr Kumar observed that many people are still roaming in the streets without masks, even some who come in for taking deliveries. The face mask parotta is priced at Rs 50 for two pieces and people can order in from various food delivery apps. "Not many in Madurai wear masks but everybody here loves parotta. We just put two and two together," Mr. Kumar told the report. How to Make Parotta at Home? Ingredients and Easy Recipe to Make the Perfect Kerala-Style Malabar Parotta (Watch Video).
