A wedding in India is more than just two people joining in sacred matrimony. It is a chance to indulge and enjoy. No Indian festival would be complete without guests, music, dance, lighting, glitzy attire, and, most importantly, a tonne of delicious food. The best delicacies from the area and popular Indian dishes are prepared throughout the wedding to provide guests with an unmatched culinary experience. After all, food is an integral component of any Indian wedding, and it is one of the things that guests talk about after attending an Indian wedding. Your options range from savory appetizers (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) through the main course that will include at least 50 different dishes, followed by a round of sweets that will again be rather high in variety. So, it wouldn’t be an overstatement if we say that an Indian wedding is practically a food tour.
Here’s a list of our favorite foods that are just finger-licking good!
Made with lentils, red kidney beans, cream, and butter, this dal is undoubtedly everyone’s favorite when it comes to weddings. The richness of this recipe and its flavourful taste have made this dal recipe a hit at weddings and parties in both North and South India. Dal Makhani is best teamed with Naan, Missi Roti, or Jeera Rice.
Butter Chicken is one of the most favorite Indian chicken dishes. Typically the butter chicken recipe is made with a rich and creamy tomato gravy. With rich tomato gravy and butter floating on top of it, this non-vegetarian recipe goes really well with bread of all kinds such as naans, roomali rotis, and even tandoori chapatis. You can also pair this with any raita of your choice.
Creamy, aromatic, and rich in taste, this is one of the best paneer recipes that can be cooked at wedding parties. This is a traditional dish that has been passed down for generations and has been the mainstay preparation in Indian cuisine since the time of the Mughals. The North Indian dish can be best enjoyed with roomali roti, butter naan, and jeera rice. Cooked using paneer, yogurt, milk, onion, and a melange of spices.
Gulab Jamun is ‘The Dessert’. It’s an essential Indian sweet that we all are very fond of. Gulab Jamun can be prepared easily and consists of spongy milky balls soaked in rose-scented syrup. It pairs nicely with fresh cream, Kulfi, or ice cream. The perfect dessert to have after your main meal.
Golgappa | Pani Puri | Puchka | Pani Patasha is perhaps one of the most common and popular Indian street food. No one can say no to Golgappa’s! An all-time favorite, these small puri balls of happiness are spicy, tangy, sweet, and eaten with specially made spiced water. A wedding menu can never be complete without a Gol Gappa.
Bhel Puri | Bhel Poori | Bhel is a famous Mumbai street food and crunchy, savory Indian chaat. Bhel Puri is the perfect snack when you want something light and at the same time satiate your taste buds. It’s sweet, spicy tangy and so irresistible. It is one of our go-to snacks at any Indian wedding.
Dahi Bhalla is another favorite Indian wedding food that has a unique taste. These tasty treats are deep-fried fritters made with lentils or chickpeas and potatoes and are served with a topping of yogurts and chutneys. The main element of a Dahi Bhalla is the fact that they are deep-fried in the delicious batter! Light on the stomach and tasty to the palates; this mouth-watering dish so beautifully sings the flavors of India.
Amritsari Paneer Tikka
Paneer is a popular Indian dish ingredient and Amritsari Paneer Tikki is a delightful starter that isn’t to be missed. This North Indian dish is bursting with delightful flavors. These paneer skewers contain an array of different spices that you will definitely love. These are perfect appetizers at any Indian wedding. Amritsari Paneer Tikka is for spice lovers, combining chili flakes, ginger paste, garlic paste, and carom seeds. We also love its varieties in the tandoori and hariyali styles.
Jalebi is a delightfully sweet, crispy delicacy. In Indian culture, this sweet dish is actually often served as a breakfast, but for Indian wedding party food, you can expect to see this as part of the dessert appetizers. The spiral-shaped food is made from deep-fried flour, chickpea flour, yogurt, and then dipped in sugar syrup. It’s loved not just by kids but adults too. The crisp sugary spirals taste brilliant when served piping hot along with chilled Rabri.
There is no better fun-filled and exciting event other than the Indian marriages. Fortunately, the wedding season is here, so let’s get dressed and go eat mouth-watering food!
