Gulab Jamuns Served Up In Cocktail Glasses
Keep those Gulab Jamuns coming - if they are served up in cute cocktail glasses, it's even better. Make sure the jamuns are small so they can be easily eaten.
Baby Corns in Sauce Bottles
Like they say, taste bhi, health bhi, now looks bhi. This pan-seared babycorn is all kinds of amazing when paired with sweet corn and spices. The clincher: served up in sauce bottles!
Golgappas are fun but when they're paired with vodka - they're fun-ner. So use those little shot glasses and go bonkers with this favourite chaat. No one will ever say NO.
Tandoori Chicken Crisps
It's marinated tandoori chicken that is just right as an appetizer - a tiny bite on crispy fried wafer served with mango chutney.

It's not everyday you get mung beans at a wedding - make sure they are tasty and put them in a filo pastry basket to give it a samosa-like appeal.
This one is super duper unique but it says something. Featured in Masterchef, this one is all about including Indian flavours like Rose, Cardamom or even Paan. Just take these ingredients and give them a twist and you'll see!
Cool Kulfis in Vintage Cups / Glasses
Serve them up traditional kulfis in cute glasses or vintage cups to give it a retro look. Besides, kulfis are everyone's cup of tea and can make any wedding pop if you use the right flavours - try mango, rose, pistachio or cardamom for extra flavour.
Anything that has rotis is super cute. So if you make interesting roti potlis with the stuffing of your choice - then, it's a shaadi favourite!
