It’s time to register for gifts for your upcoming Indian wedding. What kinds of things should you include? We’re so glad you asked. There are a million guides out there for items to include on your wedding registry, but we’re here to provide you with some ideas for things that will be useful to you as a newly wedded Indian couple. Here is a list of items we’d suggest adding to your kitchen.
Spice dabba for keeping all of your Indian spices neat and nearby.
Silver cups, bowls, plates for pujas and nostalgic Indian meals at home.
Rolling pin for making rotis, chappatis, or just pie.
Roti press, for those of you who (like us) have no talent for rolling round rotis.
Mugs for chai (or coffee), especially for when your parents are in town visiting. You’ll need to have a bunch on hand, because older Indian people like to drink chai at least twice a day.
A sturdy tray or two that you can use to carry around all of those chai mugs.
A tea kettle for making chai.
Dosa and idli makers for fancy nights at home.
Pressure cooker, slow cooker, or Instant Pot.
Acrylic canisters to sort your daals and different flours (besan, atta, all-purpose, gluten-free, cake, cornmeal, the list goes on…).
