Yash Solanki, owner of the vegetarian Vedic eatery in Jodhpur is trying new ways to attract customers who are afraid to eat outside.
Rajasthan: A restaurant in Jodhpur is serving 'COVID' curry and mask naans.

They have fried vegetables shaped in a 'crown' to resemble the coronavirus, while the naans are made to resemble the surgical masks.
The owner also mentioned they have added and are advertising their COVID Curry that comes with extra curry and spices which are good for health.
This has been a really tough time for us and for our entire sector. Even with recently relaxed curbs, the fear still dominates. People are still very reluctant to eat out.
