The Art of Pairing: Finding the Perfect Wine or Beer to Complement Your Indian Takeaway

Introduction: Pairing the right beverage with your Indian takeaway can elevate the dining experience, enhancing the flavors of your meal and creating a harmonious balance on your palate. At Jaflong Tandoori, we believe in the art of pairing, and in this blog post, we'll share tips and recommendations for finding the perfect wine or beer to complement your favorite Indian dishes.

Pairing with Wine: White Wine:

  • Riesling: With its floral aromas and crisp acidity, Riesling pairs well with spicy dishes like Chicken Tikka Masala or Vegetable Korma, balancing the heat with its sweetness.

  • Sauvignon Blanc: The zesty citrus and herbal notes of Sauvignon Blanc complement the vibrant flavors of dishes like Tandoori Chicken or Fish Curry, refreshing the palate between bites.

Red Wine:

  • Grenache or GSM Blend: The fruity and spicy characteristics of Grenache or GSM (Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre) blends complement the rich and bold flavors of dishes like Lamb Rogan Josh or Beef Madras, enhancing the depth of the spices.

  • Pinot Noir: With its silky texture and red fruit flavors, Pinot Noir pairs well with milder dishes like Chicken Korma or Paneer Tikka, allowing the delicate flavors to shine.

Pairing with Beer: Indian Pale Ale (IPA):

  • The hoppy bitterness and citrusy notes of an IPA complement the bold flavors and spices in dishes like Vindaloo or Chicken Curry, providing a refreshing contrast to the heat.

Lager or Pilsner:

  • The crisp and clean profile of a lager or pilsner pairs well with lighter dishes like Tandoori Chicken or Vegetable Biryani, cleansing the palate between bites.

Experiment and Explore: Don't be afraid to experiment with different pairings to discover your favorite combinations. Whether you prefer the bold flavors of red wine with your Indian curry or the refreshing effervescence of beer with your Tandoori dishes, there's a perfect pairing waiting to be discovered at Jaflong Tandoori.
