Other than the Bride, Groom and family, one of the most important aspects to a Gujarati wedding is the food. Food is an integral part to the Gujarati wedding festivities, so it is important to have Gujarati caterers who serve only the most delicious and authentic foods.
Gujarati cuisine is primarily vegetarian so the emphasis of its dishes are on its spices and rich flavours. Ingredients such as ghee, lentils, yoghurt, and besan/gram flour are common. Gujarati foods are traditionally served in stainless steel dishes and bowls known as thali’s that have individual compartments for the various delicacies. That allows for sweet, salt, bitter, sour, and spicy flavours to be present on just one plate of Gujarati food.
With so much variety to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down your choices. Here are a few must haves that every Gujarati wedding menu needs.
Dhokla and Patra Mix
Dhokla is a savoury and spongy steamed cake. It has a soft, fluffy texture that is a delight to eat and is a popular snack item in Gujarat.
Patra is an appetizer made with Colocasia or Malanga leaves and has a sweet, spicy, and tangy flavour. Its distinctive pinwheel shape is a must have for any wedding or event.
Khadi is a light gram flour and sour yoghurt soup flavoured with cumin & curry leaves. It is tempered and simmered until it is bursting with the sweet and sour flavour common in Gujarati foods.
A healthy and hearty soup made with lentils, Daal has a wide variety of mouth watering spices such as cumin, lemon, sugar, cloves, green chilies, ginger, and curry leaves. Like most Gujarati dishes, it has the characteristic sweet and sour flavour.
