Wedding Catering 101: A Guide to North Indian style Wedding Catering

Serving your guests authentic North Indian food has never been this easy.


The Northern part of India is known for several things - A mere mention of North India conjures up images of the Taj Mahal, the Thar Desert, and several other landmarks. However, the one export from North India that people all over the world love is undoubtedly the food. At Matrimony Bazaar, if we were to describe North Indian food in a line, it would be exactly like a 90’s kid describing the Powerpuff girls - “Sugar, spice, and everything nice.”


As tasty as it sounds, it is no mean task to whip up authentic North Indian food. North Indians use more than five types of dal on a daily basis. A common misconception is that, North Indian food is a mixture of a lot of Garlic, Onion, and one universal “Garam masala” but it is far from the truth.  


We at Matrimony Bazaar, understand how complex yet delicious North Indian food can get, if made in the right way. We make sure our catering partners give you your money’s worth. Cooking North Indian food can get messy at times. Keeping this in mind, we constantly check the workspaces of our catering partners to maintain hygienic standards.


At Matrimony Bazaar, we also understand how difficult finding a good North Indian caterer in cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, etc., can be. We assist you in finding the best caterers suitable for your needs. Be it small or big weddings, we promise to give you the best food.  


Our Wedding Assist service lets you relax by talking and negotiating with the vendors on your behalf. We assist you in finalizing the vendors and get you the best deals possible.


Below is a list of services that our North Indian Caterers offer:

North Indian Breakfast for Wedding Ceremony

The usual North Indian breakfast fare consists of various types of parathas among other delicacies. The common ones being: Aloo Paratha (Potato), Muli Paratha (Radish), Pyaaz Paratha, etc.. There is also the infamous ‘Puri aloo sabji’ served with chilled buttermilk. The practice of having a kachori or samosa with aloo sabji is also common. As the weather in the northern part of the country is always in the extremes, the food preparations also vary with the changes in weather conditions. During winter, people eat dishes like ‘Gajar ka Halwa’ or ‘Sooji ka Halwa’ for breakfast. We will get you in touch with the best caterers as we believe in treating your event as our own.

Main Course - Popular Gravies and Rice dishes for your wedding ceremony


Gravies are of great importance in a North Indian meal. An inexperienced caterer usually cannot pull off a decent “Paneer Butter Masala,” or a spiced up “Butter Chicken,” but this isn’t the case with our catering partners. Gravies like Palak paneer, Chicken Ghee roast, Chicken kheema, Malai Kofta, etc., are cooked to perfection by our caterers.


The rice items usually include steamed basmati rice, Jeera rice, Pulaos, and biryanis. To go with these, varieties of Dals like Dal Makhani, Dal Tadka, Dal fry, etc., are prepared. There are also varieties of raitas the North Indians are famed for making. At Matrimony Bazaar, we connect you to caterers who make sure all the dishes that you wish to have, are prepared without having to compromise on quality and quantity.

Non-Vegetarian catering for Weddings


At Matrimony Bazaar, we have several pure vegetarian chefs, cooks, and caterers who cater to poojas, traditional events, and weddings. However, if you are looking to host an event where you’re looking for non-vegetarian dishes as well, the North Indian lunch menu naturally consists of a lot of non-vegetarian food. If meat is not cooked with care, it can also harm one’s health. This is why we ensure that our catering partners cook in a clean environment and do the needful when it comes to preparing non-vegetarian food.
