Chef's Tip

If you can’t find fresh curry leaves (from some large Tesco stores or Asian grocers), use dried.

Wine Recommendation

Wine note: The ideal wine for the savoury dishes is a wonderfully soft, smooth juicy red. Pick a ripe Pinot Noir, ideally from California or New Zealand, with plenty of strawberry and cherry flavours.
