Magan Rasoi was set up to meet the basic need for refreshments to visitors and guests visiting the Magan Sangrahalaya museum which is the norm the world over, but with the rising public demand now it has grown into a popular Organic food joint in Wardha.
Rasoi is meant to support organic farmers and rural women enterprises in and around Wardha by providing them an outlet to market their produce at a fair price.
Rasoi provides regular employment to nearly 50 local people and supports about 100 organic farmers and rural women entrepreneurs in Wardha district through technological know-how and marketing facilities.
In keeping with our dedication to organic living and environment conservation rather than concrete structures, we housed the Rasoi in a bamboo frame surrounded by rich foliage and greenery. Open from all sides the Rasoi bamboo structure breezes in the freshness and flavours of changing seasons much to the delight of guests.
Rasoi is known for its traditional local Vidarbha ‘Varadi’ dishes. We take special care that guests are served with the best quality organic food. For this we use fresh Ghani oil (wooden oil press), organic millets, pulses and spices procured directly from organic farmers helping them with raising their household income.
Rasoi dishes are flavoured with slowly ground aromatic spices, pickles and papads freshly prepared by rural women enterprises.
To preserve the taste and flavour of traditional local food, the millet rotis and some vegetables are cooked on wooden fire.
To avoid adulteration we procure fresh cow milk from farmers and ourselves prepare pure curds, butter-milk, ghee and cheese.
Rasoi has introduced a new range of healthy drinks and sweets such as antioxidant natural sherbet from the locally grown Rosella flower, organic sugar cane and ginger juices and traditional sweets made from fresh vegetables like squash, papaya, and banana, thus bringing back the almost lost classic cuisine of India. All these are rare to this region making Rasoi a favourite joint of discerning visitors.
The Rasoi is a ‘No Waste’ enterprise. All kitchen waste is converted into biogas, compost and vegetable waste is fed to the cows.
We look forward to your visit to Rasoi with your family and friends to enjoy fresh, traditional, chemical free, tasty food and sherbets.
Join us in assisting organic farmers and rural women enterprises in our region for healthy living.
