Choosing a wedding menu can be challenging, especially when you know that some of your guests are vegan. The good news is that nowadays there are many vegan options for desserts, so now your vegan guests won’t have to miss out.
Turns out, you don’t necessarily need to use milk products, eggs, or any kind of dairy at all to achieve the luxurious and rich flavour of some of the best sweets out there, including Indian sweet treats!
Fortunately, dairy-free substitutes have a similar taste and texture to the real thing. This means everyone, including vegans, can enjoy Indian desserts.
From Julab Jamun and cupcakes, to Karanji and sugar doughnuts, here are some great options to consider for your wedding menu.
1. Dairy-Free Ras Malai
Ras malai is a delicious Bengali delicacy, it is a perfect balance of sweet creaminess and spongy milk cakes.
2. Soan Papdi (Patisa)
Soan Papdi (aka Patisa) is a delicious North Indian dessert that will melt in your mouth thanks to its light and flaky texture. In this vegan version, we use vegan butter and soy milk.
3. Apple Jalebi
Apple jalebi has a fruity twist on the popular Jalebi dessert. Apple rings are dipped in a dairy-free batter and deep-fried to a golden brown before they are dipped in sugar syrup to create a crunchy sweet treat.

Ladoo is one of the most enjoyable and popular Indian sweets. This fudgy coconut ladoo is made with just five simple ingredients and is the perfect dessert snack any day of the week. Not only is this a vegan dessert but it is also gluten-free.
