Drink pairing tips

  • Pair saffron lassi with prawn curry

    When considering what goes best with prawn curry, we recommend a glass of saffron lassi, it truly complements the dish as it cools the palate between bites.


  • A great 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.

  • Pair Chardonnay with 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.

Did you know?

  • Full of shrimp

    shrimp is tasty, but could you eat 12 pounds of it in 8 like Joey Chestnut?

  • A iconic drink from Thailand

    Should you find yourself on the streets of Thailand be sure to sample the local thai tea one of the country's most classic and popular drinks!

  • A historical dish

    The chicken tikka masala was only thought up in 1960s! We wonder what people ever did without some good chicken tikka masala in their lives...
