Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for prawn curry

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for prawn curry can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cold drink, particularly a glass of saffron lassi. This, sweet, cold drink balances the spicy prawn curry.

  • Chardonnay and butter chicken


    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Chardonnay, with its hits of fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The ideal pairing for vegetable jalfrezi

    Experts recommend pairing a vegetable jalfrezi with a glass of Pinot Noir, a popular red wine.
