A Moldovan Pinot Grigio is Great with Rick Stein’s Rogan Josh

IMG_0330.JPG (2)We enjoyed watching Rick Stein’s India TV series and tried his Lamb Rogan Josh recipe from one of the programmes.

Its tomatoey with Kashmiri chillies, yoghurt and cream.  A lovely rich, smooth and spicy curry that we served with pilau rice and garlic and coriander naan.  Bizarrely, we enjoyed this in the garden on a warm summer day.

We paired the meal with a bottle of Albastrele Pinot Grigio Moldova 2011 from the Sunday Times Wine Club. This white was creamy, mellow with pear and melon flavours and was a great match with the curry.
