The mouths of guests start watering when they hear the words ‘cheese balls’. The yummy and gooey flavor of creamy cheese and the crispy exterior of the ball make it one of the most loved appetizers by people of all ages.

While young adults love western starters like cheese balls, the elderly clan’s favorites are desi chaat baskets. It is a twist of famous street chaat, served as starters at the weddings. A fried basket-like structure is filled with the chaat mixture and topped with curd, crunchies, and some fruits. We highly recommend adding an Indian street food twist to the wedding menu with this dish.

Chicken Lollipops

On the portal, you will find more than one thousand caterers who are registered from all over the country. Choose the caterer who fulfills your requirement and falls within your pre-decided budget.
