We enjoyed one of Madhur Jaffrey’s Curry Bible recipes – Sri Lankan Red Beef Curry. It combines pungent spices with water and coconut milk, so there was a lot of cooking liquid. This creamy, slightly sweet curry almost resembled a soup. An off-dry Riesling would almost certainly been good, but we didn’t have one. However, we did have a bottle of La Tour de Marrenon Reserve Côtes du Luberon 2010, a Southern French white from Tesco that we last had with a Malaysian curry (see 16 March 2011). The wine is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. We detected floral aromas, citrus fruits, peaches and a pleasing creaminess. The wine was good with the curry. We must try this curry with a Riesling for comparison next time.
