New Delhi, Aug 31(ANI): A south Indian man is selling Indian delicacies on the streets of Chongqing and is also minting money from it.

Shakti Kumar, a native of Chennai, moved to Chongqing in 2005 and soon opened an Indian food stall on Foreigners Street, a popular hangout featuring western architecture and foreign food stalls, reports the China Daily.

In five years, Kumar brought his entire family to Chongqing and runs as many as four stalls on the same street.

The speciality at Kumar’s stalls is roti canai (pronounced “chennai”), a type of flatbread, made with dough, egg, flour and water.

Kumar said roti canai is so popular among the locals who eat at his stall that usually people have to stand in line for it. (ANI)
