Hosting a big fat Indian wedding is incomplete without serving finger-licking food to the honourable guests. As we all know ‘The Khaana’ is the main best thing about weddings. The moment we hear about the Indian wedding the aroma of all those tempting spices and the lip-smackingly delicious food cross our mind. Every wedding has some yummy, mouth-watering delicacies, so rich and so decadent that they are only served at weddings. And admit it that at least once we have secretly peeked into the pantry or the menu, to see what the wedding has for you.
Before people used to call a Halwai and along with him, his team used to take care of the whole menu but recently professional wedding caterers have replaced them. Nowadays what is sizzling up the wedding venues are the latest food trends with international dimensions and unique exhibits. No matter how many exotic world cuisines you add to the wedding menu but it is essential to keep our Indian palates satisfied with the desi lip-smacking food from Indian streets on which people look forward to as chaat counters, paneer delicacies, and so much more…
Food lies in the very heart of every Indian wedding, and below given are some of the best Indian food items that are a must on the magnificent menu.
No doubt in saying that if there is one dish which unknots all the people in the country, it’s Biryani. This extremely delicious dish coming straight from the royal kitchens of the Mughals has made a special place in the hearts of people. Whether it is veg, mutton or chicken Biryani is loved by everyone. It is a rice dish that is prepared by a unique combination of spices that makes it fingerlicious good.
Since years paneer is the most popular item in every Indian household and has a great fan following among our fellow foodies. No doubt in saying that paneer is the best substitute of chicken for vegetarians and is one of the main ingredients that are used in preparing ‘Shahi Paneer’, Paneer Butter Masala’, or ‘Paneer Makhani’. According to a recent survey, this exquisite dish is one amongst the top five foods ordered in India.
We are sure saying that one can ditch anything in the world but not butter chicken. It is a very popular Indian chicken dish that is loved by all the non-vegetarians. No doubt in saying that this dish has its own fan following and without which a Punjabi wedding will never complete! Nowadays, at least keeping one chicken item is must and if you are confused what to serve then this is the best option. It is made with rich and creamy tomato gravy and goes with all kinds of bread. It is also one item that is highlighted on the menu of every other Dhaba.
Being a part of the traditional Punjabi food menu, dal makhani is one dish that needs no introduction and is extremely delicious. This dish is a must-have at any wedding, it is often served with a western twist of cream and butter. No doubt this dish is indeed very rich and flavourful preparation and makes a popular entry to the marriage function menu.
The wedding menu is incomplete without a sweet dish or dessert. Gulab Jamun is a very popular Indian dessert and is also a traditional sweet. It is prepared by using Khoya or Mawa, Khoya is a dry evaporated milk that is obtained by continuously stirring the milk till its moisture gets evaporated. It is easy to prepare and is liked by all. Therefore, it is one of the best options to add to your menu list for an upcoming wedding.
