Try a Pinot Noir with Lamb Vindaloo. Photo

||Vishal Khosla, owner of Klay Oven in Chicago, has had a lot of time to experiment with wine parings at his Indian restaurant. His tips for what pairs best:
- A dirty martini goes well with appetizers like vegetable samosas or chicken and lamb kabobs with onions and green peppers.
- With Lamb Vindaloo, try a Pinot Noir; it offers a subtly sweet contrast to the spices in the dish.
- Chicken Masala pairs best with Sauvignon Blanc; the wine provides a contrast to the spices in the dish.
- Try a bold Cabernet Sauvignon to add some intensity to chickpea and lentil dishes.
- Hot curries need a wine with a bit of residual sugar. Try Riesling or Gewürztraminer; with milder curries, have an Alsatian Pinot Gris.
