Desi Weddings

With the wedding season starting in the U.S., you know guests are there just as much for the food as for the people. We thought this would be a good time to go over a few options when looking at desserts for Desis.

 

The Layout – It’s All About The Layout

The layout of the desserts is essential.  The above image from MDCSF shows a nice layout how it flows with the rest of the arrangement.  See how the colors compliment one another, the desserts are seamlessly part of the show.  Having a good balance of Eastern and Western desserts is essential.  Let’s focus on the Eastern flavors shall we?

Gulab Jamun

What more is there to say?  These milk balls are packed with sugar and taste awesome!  Can’t go wrong with these in your mix.

Mango Lassi – What!?

Have you tried Mango Lassi?  It is a refreshing drink that will calm down the main dish and is easy to make. It’s not as traditional in the wedding scene, but not as new either.

 

How About Mhendi Cupcakes?
