The Coimbatore Corporation will soon complete work on the Ayurveda canteen it is constructing at the main office in Town Hall. Even as the work was progressing, the Corporation had provided training in cooking Ayurvedic food to the members of the Self-Help Groups. They are now ready to launch the canteen once the work is completed.
Once started, the canteen will provide breakfast and lunch for 200 persons. Depending upon the response, it would either scale down or up the quantity of food cooked. The canteen would run six days a week and serve herbal health food preparations like karuvepilaiidli, avarampooidli, thulasiidli, thinaiidli and samaiidli, murungaikeeraiadai, navadhaniyaadai, musumusukkaiadai, buttermilk and thuvayal.
