What we Provide

Your Day will start with a piping hot cup of Tea or Coffee, followed by Regular Indian Breakfast, once a week Continental and American style breakfast usually served at 8:00am.
Lunch is a heavy meal consisting of Rice, Lentil Soup, vegetables, some pickle, or poppadoms, we tend to vary every day but it's always a heavy meal which is usually served between 1:30pm to 2:30pm.
At 5:00pm you will again get a cup of Tea or Coffee with some snacks or biscuits
and at 8:00pm we have dinner, usually we serve Indian Bread with vegetable, or eggs. And you can end your day with a glass of milk, tea or coffee of your preference.

Most of the vegetables are grown in the mission campus and is 100% organic, On odd days we even prepare Chicken or Meat based on availability at the local market, which takes place on Mondays and Thursdays, else we would have to travel 25 kilometers to the next town to procure some, which we usually do just once a week.

If you have a craving towards a special meal do let us know and we shall try our best to make the arrangements. Also keep us informed of your allergies, and if you are a vegetarian, eggetarian, etc...
