Drinks Accompanying Curry
- Lassi is a yoghurt based drink that is consumed with
- Tea, hot or iced, is often drunk with curry.
- Lager is a popular accompaniment to curry, particularly in the
United Kingdom, with popular brands being Kingfisher and Cobra
- Wine is increasingly popular with curry, especially amongst
those who seek something refreshing and alcoholic without the added
gas of a lager. Wine for Spice produced a range of refreshing wines
developing on the cold-lager-with-curry concept. The Charmat method
naturally second-fermented semi-sparkling wine is recommended
lager-cold but, unlike a lager, the gas is natural. Mass-produced
lager has carbon dioxide injected into it, which produces larger
bubbles than a second fermentation.
Wine for Spice's formula for Matching Wine with Curry is:
naturally second-fermented semi-sparkling wine; lager-cold; good
acidity; no tannin; no oak chips; moderate alcohol; sweetness of
wine rising with chili heat.
