Ten Asian Wedding Food Ideas You Need To Steal

For the best day of your life, you want your guests to remember it as well as you do and for all the right reasons. As the saying goes; the best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, so your wedding needs to wow your guests with a sumptuous wedding breakfast, tantalising canapes and delicious desserts.

Your wedding catering needs to impress, but also express your personality, after all, it is your big day. So how do you make sure you offer something different that gets the guests talking and makes sure that everyone is satisfied?

If you’re stuck for ideas, here are ten of our best Asian wedding food ideas that are guaranteed to hit the mark.

  1. Prawn Roti Rolls

For a delicious appetiser that’s pretty and elegant, take a small roti, add a spiced king prawn complete with garnish in the middle. Roll the sides of the roti up and tie with a chive stem to keep the filling secure. These rolls easy to eat, complete with an impressive filling on display all wrapped up with a pretty edible bow.

  1. Rose and Cardamom Panna Cotta

This delicious Italian-style set cream meets Asian flavours by infusing rose, cardamom and paan into the cream. Depending on your colour scheme, or whether you want the rose or cardamom to take centre stage, you can colour the panna cotta accordingly. The colour options make this dessert stylish and on trend, and this unusual take on a classic dessert will get the compliments flowing.

  1. Samosa Vol au Vent

Taking the classic samosa filling, add it to filo pastry cups and top with spiced crispy mung beans, offering a pretty take on the classic canape with a variety of textures to tantalise the palate.

  1. Mango Kulfi Lollies

Easy to eat on the move, kulfi lollies are great for a sweet treat for the buffet table. The mango will give the lollies a warm sunset glow. To entertain the children at the wedding, offer a range of sprinkles to coat the ice lollies in. Sweeties, edible glitter and crushed pistachios are great to add a little creativity to the menu.

  1. Sharing Boards

Ideal for grazers and to tide people over before the main meal arrives, sharing boards can be stylishly presented on each table and provide a great talking point for guests to introduce themselves over. Choose from a range of crispy snacks, such as crispy chapati, bhakri, naan and poppadum and add a variety of dips such as raita, chatpata chana, tomato chutney and hot garlic pickle.

  1. ‘Something For Everyone’ Skewers

It can be hard to please every taste, so the ‘something for everyone’ skewers are perfect for people to be experimental but enjoy food within their limits. Load the skewers with chicken pieces marinated in a range of different spices such as butter chicken and tikka masala, have the pieces arranged in levels of heat and spiciness so people can eat up until their happy and leave the pieces that are too hot to handle. For vegetarians, try using deep-fried paneer coated in spice mixes.

  1. Asian halibut and coconut shrimp

For the main course that wows, try Asian-style halibut, with flavours of ginger, coconut and soy on a bed of bok choy and sesame green beans complete with a coconut shrimp that gives the dish a sophisticated and stylish finish.

  1. Sambar and Heart-Shaped Idli

For a south-Indian flavour, take the classic sambar and refine it into a broth for a starter. Full of flavour, this is a great first dish for a menu, providing you reduce the vegetables and focus on the soup rather than the stew. Serve with heart-shaped idlis coloured with beetroot for a romantic start to the wedding breakfast.

  1. Salmon Chana Cones

Ideal for canapes or the buffet table, these delightful bites are served in ice cream cones, making them easy to hold. The chana masala mixture is kept relatively dry to avoid seepage out of the cones and mixed with chunks of flaky salmon.

  1. Cocktails

To wash down your scrumptious wedding food, why not offer bespoke wedding cocktails? Lychee Bellini, Watermelon Margarita and Spiced Mango Mojitos are perfect for adding fun and fusion to the menu as well as colour to tables. Choose your colour theme and go from there.
