Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Riesling, Gruener Veltliner, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Curry. The best wine for Indian food will depending on the dish, of course, but these picks can be served chilled and have some sweetness to complement the spiciness and complex flavors of a wide variety of traditional dishes. The Wagner Vineyards Riesling Ice with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 31 dollars per bottle.

Gently pressing frozen grapes extracts only the juice while leaving water behind in the form of ice. The result is this luxurious, full-bodied dessert wine. Aromatic and zesty, each sip exploded with vibrant fruitiness & leaves behind a lively, lingering finish.
