Think Organic Living. Think Devang House.

I have not been keeping well of late. In fact, I was hospitalized twice last month - in a short span of a week - for acute tonsillitis. The good news is: the worst is behind me now. I am feeling great once again, which means I can have more time for the blog.

This weekend I decided to visit a quaint lil café in the heart of the capital's Diplomatic Enclave. Housed in Amatrra, The Ashok Hotel, Chanakyapuri, and hailed for spreading the 'Joy of Being', Devang House is built by a community of creative coworkers who believe in the prowess of organic food, natural products, and holistic spaces.

As I entered the peaceful corner where the café is located, it dawned to me how necessary it is to imbibe Organic Living as part of our new and changing lifestyle.

The basic premise on which Devang operates is that we are a part of nature, not separate from it. Not surprising then, the Artisan Gourmet food here is made fresh on order from organic and natural ingredients, without any preservatives or synthetic additives.

Devang - Popular for serving Organic Food

Devang produces all of its fresh eggless baked products using farm-sourced organic wheat, millet, and super foods.

Opened in October 2015, Devang House is the only organic and vegetarian restaurant in Delhi with ingredients sourced directly from local farms. The team curates special seasonal menus, and complements food with a variety of events such as cooking classes, Sunday brunches, and live music nights.

In fact, the new, popular band 'The Sufis' recently held their fourth performance - Soul Sessions: An Evening of Sufi Music - at the Devang House. The band has become an integral part of the Devang community!

The café is open every day from 9am to 10pm. My favorites on their menu include stone oven pizza, pesto khichdi, chickoo-almond butter smoothie, and ragi and banana pancakes.

Interestingly, the five-course menu changes every week to keep things ticking!
