Desi (noun; pronounced ‘deɪsi’ or ‘dési’):

This applies to a person of South Asian descent who lives anywhere in the world. The official definition of South Asia contains the following countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and the Maldives. And, of course, their globally-scattered diaspora.

The word is also often used as a qualifying adjective or adverb: “desi writer” or “desi cooking”.
