A Muscadet is Very Good with a Madras Chicken Curry

Supercook’s Madras Chicken Curry is one of our favourite curries and is flavoured with mustard seeds, onion, ginger, garlic, turmeric, coriander, chilli powder, fenugreek, cumin, black pepper, coconut milk, creamed coconut, bay leaves, lemon juice and green chillies.  We serve it with fresh tomatoes, yoghurt and cucumber raita and rice.

Our wine pairing choice for the curry was a bottle of Chateau la Tarcière Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sur Lie 2012, a French white from the Wine Society.

The wine was creamy with a melon and citrus tanginess and it was full enough to cope with the flavours of the meal.  A very good match.2014-06-28 19.18.30
