In 2014, Rawal released his first cookbook, The Raaga Cookbook: Modern Indian Cuisine. A year later, he produced another, Curry, Korma & Kebab: A Culinary Journey of India.
Rawal appeared as a contestant on the Food Network show Chopped. He received a shout-out on live TV by daytime talk-show host Kelly Ripa, who vacationed in Santa Fe with her husband Mark Consuelos and enjoyed a meal at Raaga. The following week on Kelly Ripa Live, she raved about Paddy, his cookbook, and their experience at Raaga.
Raaga-Go opened in fall, 2018. One of his favorite aspects of running a restaurant, Rawal said in an interview with The New Mexican, is “the diversity of the diners and the awareness locals have about various ethnic cuisine.” Because regular patrons are so well-traveled, Paddy is able to be more experimental with his menu, adding a contemporary flair to traditional Indian cuisine.
