Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had launched one of her new schemes – restaurants for the economically weak – sometime ago by opening one in San Thome, near the Registration Office.
Now, the state has decided that such restaurants will be opened in each Ward in the Chennai Corporation limits. And one such is ready for business on Kamaraj Salai, R. A. Puram.
These places are called Amma Unavagam and serve idlis for breakfast and a few varieties of rice – sambar rice and curd rice for lunch. People have asked that either papad or pickles be also served with the rice items.
