After all the rich and delicious appetisers and entrees are eaten, the guests at your Indian wedding will be wanting something sweet to eat. Indian cuisine is known for its variety of flavours, colours, and tastes and these characteristics definitely extend to the dessert menu. With so many moreish options to choose from, everyone will find something they love come dessert time.
A few of the most popular desserts served at Indian weddings are:
- Gulab Jammon: Gulab Jammon are soft berry sized balls made of milk solids, flour, and a leavening agent. To achieve their unique sweet taste, they are soaked in rose flavoured syrup. In fact, the name says it all: in Hindi, gulab means rose and jamun means berry.
- Gajar Ka Halwa: Gajar Ka Halwa is a sweet, delicious carrot based pudding that is almost always present at Indian feasts. Grated carrots are simmered in a pot of water, milk, sugar, ghee, and cardamom, creating a dish of contrasting flavours and textures.
- Kulfi: Like an Indian ice cream, Kulfi is much denser than supermarket ice cream. It is made by boiling milk for long periods over a low heat before being sweetened, flavoured, and frozen in small pots or moulds. Kulfi can be made with a wide range of flavours such as cardamom, saffron, rose, mango, and pistachio.
- Aam Shrikhand: Aam Shrikhand is a sweet yoghurt based dessert bursting with the flavour of mango. Thick, creamy yoghurt is blended with mango puree, sugar, saffron, and ground cardamom to make a divine and unique delicacy that is always a favourite at Indian weddings and events.
