Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level pairing for saffron lassi

    Experts recommend pairing a prawn curry with a glass of saffron lassi, a popular cold drink.

  • 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 drink pairing for green sauce palak paneer

    Knowing what to pair with green sauce palak paneer can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Chenin Blanc. This, dry, white wine balances the herbaceous green sauce palak paneer.
