Jodhpur restaurant sells COVID Curry, Mask Naan, leaves customers intrigued

GULF NEWS – While COVID-19 continues to spread, a restaurant in Jodhpur has infused creativity in its menu by adding COVID-19-themed dishes. The Vedic restaurant here is serving new and unique ‘COVID Curry’ and ‘Mask Naan’ to its customers.

The COVID Curry is basically malai kofta made in the shape of the COVID-19 while the ‘Mask Naan’ is a facemask-shaped naan.

Restaurant’s owner, Anil Kumar said these two new dishes are his brainchild. “The curry is a variation of malai kofta in which the kofta has been made with various spices and the butter naan has been made in the shape of a mask,” said Kumar.

“The time is such that people get attracted only if you try something new. So, we have added corona to our menu so that people like it and somehow learn to live with coronavirus as well,” he added.

He added that his restaurant is ensuring proper social distancing and sanitisation norms. Customers here have been instructed to sit on alternate tables, moreover, this restaurant has a digital menu to avoid touching the menu cards.

“I was so excited to see the unique COVID Curry dish so I finally came here to have it.

“I am satisfied with the restaurant’s service, they are following proper sanitisation norms. I really liked Mask Naan and COVID Curry,” said customer Laveen Solanki.
