Monsoon Wedding

In August, I had the opportunity to attend the wedding of my roommate's older sister in Lucknow, India. One of the most memorable aspects of the experience (aside from the sweltering monsoon weather) was the extravagant food. Similar to trends in the U.S. of dolled-up burgers or truffled macaroni and cheese, the wedding had a strong emphasis on upscale chaat, or street food.

Chaat and accoutrements

Aloo tikki (potato croquette served with various chutneys)

A chef preparing chicken kebabs

A much more traditional lunch of potatoes, okra, and bread
