Pairing Notes: We love eating Indian food with Riesling and anytime we can cook it ourselves at home, we jump on the opportunity!

Chef's Tip: If we have a cucmber on hand we like to make tzatziki to serve with it otherwise you can make a simple white sauce with plain yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice and garlic.
