In Hindi, %26#039;Desh%26#039; means Nation
Deshi means belonging to the nation.
Desi is a corruption of the word Deshi.
So, in a way Desi means belonging to India, of Indian origin, or native of India.

There is more to Desi.
In India, the real Ghee (Clarified butter) was called %26#039;Desi Ghee%26#039;, meaning real Ghee.
While Dalda, a shortening made of hydrogenated peanut oil was called %26#039;Vilaiti Ghee%26#039;, Vilaiti literally meaning foreigner.

Let us go to one more definition, the villagers in India were called %26#039;Desi Bhai%26#039;, meaning native brethren.

Now it starts complete the answer. Desi means real native of India. It differentiated Indians born in India from the second generation Indians in UK, USA or Australia.

After the independence, nationalism started to take root. It became fashionable to call one-self as Desi, as opposed to Indian, Hindustani, or Pakistani. Indians became proud nationalist.

Bottom line definition:
Desi is a real native of India and proud of it

Desi food is just old fashioned real native food eaten in villages.
