Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level match for prawn curry

    Experts often pair prawn curry with a glass of saffron lassi, a popular cold drink.

  • 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.

  • Chardonnay with your butter chicken

    Looking for a new pairing to match the mild, creamy and buttery flavour of butter chicken? Try Chardonnay with its fruit flavour next time.

Fun facts

  • Celebrating a love for curry

    Can’t get enough curry? You’re not alone. The United States celebrates National Curried Chicken Day every year on January 12.

  • Priceless or overpriced?

    The curry which costs $2,584, can be ordered at the Bombay Brasserie.

  • A traditional drink of Thailand

    Often considered one of the most iconic drinks in Thailand, thai tea is a common choice across the country, often prepared with tea, milk and sugar.
