While the wedding is on October 4, the couple’s pre-wedding celebrations are happening in full-swing in Delhi, pictures of which are going viral on the internet. From the cocktail party to sangeet and haldi, we are getting snippets of them all through social media. And the wedding is surely expected to be a grand affair, with a hint of classic 'Dilli' vibe.

While both Richa and Ali have been sharing adorable pictures from the ceremonies on social media, what grabbed our attention is a video that Richa shared on her Instagram stories. It was too indulgent to miss. Well, that’s what desi weddings are made of, and foodies like us just couldn’t miss it. Re-sharing a video featuring the halwai at work, preparing a mithai in two huge tumblers, the bride-to-be wrote, "Lol when two foodies decide to celebrate their union". Take a look at the snippet from the video below:  

Mouth-watering much? We know! But can you guess the mithai-in-making? Well, it’s none other than the royal Mughlai sweet, Shahi Tukda. Richa and Ali have a halwai at the venue to dish out fresh Shahi Tukdas for the guests at their pre-wedding ceremonies. Take a closer look:

Reportedly, the wedding menu includes many of the popular food items from across Delhi, since Richa hails from the Capital.
