Drink Pairing Tips from Tandoor Chef  

  1. When enjoying spicier dishes, such as Lamb Vindaloo, it’s best to pair with a wine that will balance the heat, not add to it. Stay away from wines with a higher alcohol content because they will intensify the spice.

  2. Cut through a salty or fried dish with a highly acidic white wine.

  3. Meat-based dishes, like Chicken Curry or Lamb Samosa, with intense, heavy flavors or smokiness pair better with a red wine, rather than a crisp, delicate white wine.

  4. There’s always Champagne! Champagne matches well with the varied spices and robust flavors of many Indian dishes.
