Meta information about this website, a project by Parth Shiralkar.

The Name

"Rasoi Haven" roughly translates to "Kitchen Haven" in English. "Rasoi" means "kitchen" or "cookery" in several Indian languages, including Marathi, Hindi, and Gujarati, while "Haven" refers to a safe or peaceful place.

The Food

I grew up eating the food displayed on the menu. I am particularly fond of any kind of dal/daal. These are household names for me and my family, and have provided me with warmth and nourishment as I navigate the more diagonal adventures of life.

Everything on the menu is vegetarian, even vegan in most cases.
