A Sikh Temple Meal
Apparently it's common to eat at a Sikh temple after the ceremonies, so after a wedding today, we went into the cafeteria downstairs where we were served a surprisingly good vegetarian meal. It featured the usual peas, potatoes, rice, yogurt, and chipatis, but what also made it fun for me was that this was the first time I ate with my hands (when in Rome...). It's a lot harder than it looks, and I found that I really lack skills in this regard, considering that I was dropping rice everywhere. But I eventually made do (by the time I got to the yogurt, I just brought the bowl up to my mouth and poured it in).
Also worthy of note was the warm gooey sweet handed out during the ceremony (I forgot the name, but it was good as it was more oily than sweet). Interestingly, some of the desserts given out at the end were also more oily than sweet. It's cool to see so much food associated with all of this.
