Desi Garden In NYC Introduces Diners To Indian-Mexican Fusion Food

Restaurateur PriaVanda Chouhan is known for launching Desi Galli, a fast-casual restaurant for Indian food, 8 years ago. While Desi Galli has spread the aroma of desi khaana all across New York thanks to their kathi rolls and rice bowls, Chouhan’s regular customers wanted something more. During the Covid pandemic, her regular customers craved a wholesome dining experience beyond the usual fast-casual menu. According to TimeOut, she decided to open a full-fledged restaurant, Desi Garden in the Big Apple.
