Tamil Nadu man sells idlis for one rupee each in the middle of closing

TRICHY: A 48-year-old man in the village of Venkatachalapuram, near Pullambadi, released a low cost that sells for one rupee each to the villagers. He cited a Kamalathal, an octogenarian woman who sold idlis for one rupee each as inspiration to open the restaurant during it.

M Palanisamy, president of Venkatachalapuram panchayat, near Pullambadi, says he launched the low-cost restaurant at the Mamara Kamarajar in his panchayat to serve predominantly older people and farmers. He sells 650-675 idlis per day. The idlis priced at Re 1 comes with sambhar and chutney. There are no other hotels in the town that have 2,000 houses.

Palanisamy added that he also conceptualized the idea of ​​opening the restaurant taking inspiration. “Kamarajar was the reason for the Pullambadi canal, a Cauvery distributor that waters our village. Agriculture is only possible thanks to the canal, ”Palanisamy told TOI the reason the restaurant was named in honor of former Prime Minister K Kamaraj. Palanisamy has planned to run the restaurant even after the blockade was lifted.
