A Chilean Cabernet is Very Good with an Indian Lamb Kebab

We tried Madhur Jaffrey’s Royal Lamb Kaati Kebab (Shahi Kaati Kabab).  This is Indian streetfood.

Boneless lamb is marinated in ginger, garlic, ground coriander, cayenne pepper and lemon juice.  The lamb is fried with the marinade, onions and chickpea flour, rather than grilled.

We garnished with fresh mint and coriander and enjoyed with an onion salad, yoghurt and chapattis.2015-01-16 18.40.36

We paired this strongly flavoured dish with a bottle of Lascar Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, a medium-bodied Chilean red from the Wine Society.

We tasted black fruits, especially cherries with vanilla sweetness.  The wine stood up well to the strong flavours of the meal and was a very good match.
