A Portuguese White is Very Good with Curried Chicken Durban Style

2015-10-17 17.54.10We cooked Madhur Jaffrey’s Curried Whole Chicken Durban Style.  A delightful recipe.

Lemon juice, ginger, garlic, green chillies, salt, olive oil, cumin and coriander are blended into a paste and then rubbed into a skinned whole chicken.  The chicken is then dusted with chilli powder and pepper and roasted.  We served the chicken with roasted sweet potatoes and salad.

With the meal we enjoyed a bottle of Quinta de Azevedo Vinho Verde 2013, a Portuguese white from Waitrose. There was an initial fizzy acidity on the tongue, followed by flavours of apples, grapefruits and lemons, with a zingy finish.  A very good match with the chicken.2015-10-17 18.02.13
