Dil Se Desi

Heyyy Desis!!!!

Welcome to the Dil Se Desi Society!

We aim to celebrate & promote the Indian subcontinent’s rich cultural heritage, as well as to bring together like-minded individuals who are passionate about their roots who also want to learn about the culture of our continents’ countries such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, and Afghanistan. 

Our Indian subcontinent is a huge region in South Asia that is bounded by the Himalayas in the north, the Bay of Bengal in the east, the Arabian Sea in the west, and the Indian Ocean to the south.

Are you missing  Amritsar's chole bhature, Hyderabad's biryani, Rajasthani Dal Baafle, Gujarati Farsan, Mumbai cha vada pav, Kolkata ka puchka, Dilli ki chat, Malabar parota with the kerela curry!!!!!!!

Come on!!! we all do and trust us we're all fed up of screaming "Make it spicy!!!!!" in restaurants.

Agree or not the feeling of being at home can never be replaced, the comfort of your mum's daal rice cannot be replaced with lasagna and that's what we're here for. 

Dil Se Desi - As the name suggests we are here to bring that nostalgic feeling again, Navatri ka Garba, Eid ki daawat, Keralathinte sadya, Durga Pooja, the Ganpati vibe, the Holi vibe and of course the Diwali vibe. 

Let's team up and try to relive our culture.

Dil Se Desi is just an initiative of some authentic desi people who got fed up with baked beans and boiled potatoes.

Guess what not only food, We're here to incorporate every little desi thing you might have done back there. 

Bollywood movies, Dances, Dialogue Competitions, and much more. 

Just show your love and see the exponential love that you get in return.
