Now we all know that one of the most important (and definitely the tastiest part) of a big fat Indian wedding is the food. Once the pre-wedding events and the wedding ceremony is over and done with, attention quite rightly turns to the food. After all, it wouldn’t be much of an Indian event without a seriously mouth-watering spread of food.
Three things you will always find a lot of at a Hindu Indian wedding are fried food, butter, and sugar. The exact dishes however tend to vary depending on the part of India that the bride, groom and their families are from.
South Indian Hindu weddings are generally vegetarian, but will serve a plethora of different treats on typically – a banana leaf! You’ll find rice dishes accompanied by daal, dosa and adlis that seem to be never ending, which I promise you, you will be thankful for because South Indian wedding food is delicious!
North Indian wedding food by contrast features tons of meat dishes involving chicken, lamb and spices. If you are attending a coastal wedding, don’t be surprised if you find fish dishes on the menu too!
Now for the best part of the meal – dessert! No matter which customs and traditions are being practiced, you can always expect to find halva. Types of halva you’re likely to come across are Moong Daal Halva and carrot and almond halva. You are also guaranteed to find some Barfi since it is a household favourite across India and comes in many different flavours and is nice and easy to make.
