Mohit, the eatery owner, said to ANI that they were giving away free Locho to anyone who visited them, as long as they showed the certificate of being fully vaccinated. Locho is a popular snack made with chickpea flour, however, unlike Khaman it has an inconsistent shape. It is said to be one of Surat’s specialties, which is why it is also called ‘Surati Locho’ by some. Locho is steamed and sprinkled with masala, chopped onions, chutney, and crunchy Sev before being served. It can be had for breakfast, or even as a snack or ‘Farsan’ during evening time.

The idea behind these freebies is to encourage more people to get vaccinated quickly. Since the scheme was such a hit, Mohit said he is extending it to two more days. “I want to encourage people to get vaccinated and take part in celebrations. We will continue this scheme for 2 more days,” said Mohit to ANI.
