JOURNEY OF THE OWNER
Owner PriaVanda Chouhan and her Husband created their restaurant to satisfy the Desi (Indian sub-continent diaspora) hankering for INDIAN SOUL FOOD. Though her father warned her husband-to-be that she couldn’t cook, PriaVanda soon taught herself to make not only her mother’s recipes but also her husband’s family favorites. Inspired by Rachael Ray’s fast and easy methods for putting dinner on the table in under 30 minutes, she turned her home kitchen into a test kitchen, mastering a multitude of Indian recipes every day, and also developing her own personal style of lighter, healthier, vegan and gluten-fee cooking without sacrificing flavor.
