Rasoi Sponsor Blog 2019


In India Rasoi means kitchen. The kitchen is the most important room of an Indian household. This is where the family come together to chat, relax and eat and there is always something good cooking on the stove. Over the last few years Rasoi and their amazing food have become synonymous with Lenzie Gala, now known as GalaFest, celebrations and this year looks set to be no different. The team at Rasoi have pledged their support yet again to ensure that we can deliver a great event for the whole community by sponsoring the event for the second year in a row and by expanding their food offering in the form of Street food. 

The company’s own website makes a statement that “like any good curry, Rasoi Lenzie has taken time” which is something that parallels with Lenzie GalaFest and our rich history of forty incredible years delivering great events by volunteers for residents in and around Lenzie to enjoy. The new format of Lenzie GalaFest is respectful to its traditional roots and holds dear that the local people and businesses of Lenzie can create something quite brilliant when they come together. 

Lynne Jhangeer, Sponsorship Team Leader, had this to say: 

‘To have Rasoi celebrating with us and sponsoring us is just a brilliant result for the community. Not only will it ensure that the 40th celebrations can go ahead but the much-loved foodie favourites of Rasoi will also be available for all to enjoy on the day or on the way home after what looks set to be a brilliant day. The team at Rasoi have outdone themselves again and their energy and enthusiasm for making the event enjoyable is contagious. We are delighted to have team Rasoi on board for 2019.” 

Established in 2011 by owners Pravesh & Rahul, Rasoi Indian restaurant and Deli is proud that their head chef Guru and his team source ingredients mostly from local farms and butchers, to cook and create exquisite traditional Indian dishes of the highest quality. Rasoi also incorporated the famous and popular Delhi Express where you can pop in for a takeaway, order in advance or for home delivery. What’s more they don’t only deliver curries. Rasoi can deliver wine with your food as well. 

Rahul Randev, Company Director at Rasoi said: “We are delighted to once again to be coming along to Lenzie Galafest 2019, this event just gets bigger and better each year and is a fantastic 

opportunity for us to get out and about in the community! Our Head Chef Guru has been with us since before Rasoi opened in 2011, he himself takes a great deal of pride in cooking for the people of Lenzie and along with his team will have even more to offer this year! We can’t wait to see what lies in store for Galafest 2019, it’s sure to be a terrific day come rain or shine! “
