Indian feasts made easy with this simple, delicious menu
Embark on a spice journey with these fresh takes on traditional recipes that come together to make an authentic Indian banquet
STUFFED OKRA Get rid of okra’s occasionally slimy texture by trimming the tops and adding lemon juice. It allows the
flavours of the stuffing to ooze out. F&T WINE MATCH Rich with sweet stone fruit (eg 2014 Prophet’s Rock Pinot Gris,
Central Otago, New Zealand)
CARROT AND CHICKPEA PANCAKES These quick, wheat-free pancakes are
perfect for mopping up sauce. F&T WINE MATCH Hawthorn and honey aromas, ample on the palate with mineral finish (eg 2015 Louis Cheze Ro-Rée blanc,
Saint-Joseph, Rhône, France) GARLIC AND RED CHILLI CHUTNEY
your pancakes in this or add it to soups and marinades for extra heat. WHOLE SPICE, CRISPY ONION AND LENTIL RICE
The peppery flavour of the lentils and the crunchy onion and garlic garnish take a bowl of rice to the next level. F&T WINE MATCH Dried pineapple, chalk and cooked champignons with honey notes (eg 2008 Emile Beyer Comtes d’Eguisheim Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France) MUSSELS IN CHILLI, GINGER
AND CURRY LEAF BROTH The molluscs are the ideal vehicle for
the delicately spiced broth. F&T WINE MATCH Flowery, delicate
lime with apple and herbs (eg 2015 Weingut Bründemayer grüner veltliner,
Terrassen Kamptal, Austria) WHITE RADISH AND ONION PARANTHA The daikon masala folded through this bread leaves it tender and sweet. F&T WINE MATCH Dry and fresh with tropical fruit (eg 2015 Journey’s End The Weather Station Sauvignon Blanc, Stellenbosch, South Africa)
