I recently visited Rasoi Ghar and was really looking forward to trying their food as at home we cook Gujrati & Rajasthani food. So I was excited about trying their thali as it would be home-style food but at a restaurant.
The ambience and décor of the place is lovely with beautiful ceilings and pictures from Rajasthan on the walls. They also have a seating area where you can sit on the floor and eat in authentic Indian style.
Rasoi Ghar changes their menu on a daily basis, which is also updated on Zomato. We started off with a drink Keri Panna, made of raw mango. This drink is basically a palate cleanser between the different courses.
Usually most places that serve thali don’t have separate starters before the main course. But at Rasoi Ghar they serve you starts first followed by main course and desert. The starter tray had four different varieties – Dal Dhokli, Paneer Lifafa, Kandvi and Palak Moong Dal which was my favorite.
For the mains in the thali we were served Marwadi dal, Gujrati dal, Marwadi Kadhi, Gijrati Kadhi, Paneer Kolhapuri, Tindola Gol, Aloo Gobi, Ragda Vatana and a few more sabzi’s. Mostly Gujrati dal’s have a little bit of sweetness to them, so like me if you are not fond of your food being sweet then you may not like some of their dal’s but everything else in the thali was well. The khadi’s and subzi’s are served with hot Indian breads. We were served hot phulka’s, makai ki roti & puri along with ghee or gurd. Since it is mango season they also had aam ras on their menu that day. I really enjoyed the hot with the yummy aam ras.
Always remember in Gujrati cuisine they start their meal first with roti and then move on to the rice. So don’t fill your stomach at the start or else you will miss out on the yummy carbs! After the roti we were served three different rice options – ghee rice, khichdi and curd rice. Seriously can’t choose a favorite as I loved all of them.
When you go for a thai you really need to forget all about your diet and through all the guilt out of the window! Even after all that food we still made space in our bellies for the dessert! They served us makkai ka halwa (a first for me) which was delicious, maalpua & rabri, and some more aam ras.
Make sure you go empty stomach, as the waiters there will make sure you eat till your hearts content. The staff there is very welcoming and love to feed you. We had a lovely experience eating there. Do let me know your experience if you visit.
