Drink pairing tips for Curry

  • Pair Pinot Noir with vegetable jalfrezi

    vegetable jalfrezi needs a partner to dance with. Seeing as it’s so spicy and tart, a nice drink to have with it is a Pinot Noir. The tasty red wine, with its ripe berries, will really compliment your meal.

  • 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.

  • Enjoy prawn curry with saffron lassi

    To elevate your prawn curry experience, we recommend some saffron lassi to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cold drink cools the palate between bites.
