Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chenin Blanc are my top picks for Asian. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Selbach Oster Riesling Kabinett with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 14 dollars per bottle.

Selbach Oster Riesling Kabinett

A crackly, starched and impeccable Kabinett; very limey-herbal; especially appley and minerally; stern minty finish. Goes with anything you like in the poultry, shellfish and seafood cuisine, especially if accompanied by cream- or butter based sauces. Great with summer salads and with Pacific Rim Cuisine.

Instructions

  1. Here's a tasty Punjabi recipe for lamb chops. My folks originated from this area of the sub-continet and hence this was popular at home.
  2. Put the ginger and garlic into the container of an electric blender with 2-3 tablespoons of water and blend to a paste.
  3. Put the chops, tomatoes, onions, cayenne pepper, yoghurt, salt and ginger-garlic paste into a large wok or heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir and bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low, cover and simmer for 50 minutes or until the chops are almost cooked. Add the cumin seeds and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the meat is tender and the sauce thick. Add the garam masala and lemon juice and stir.
  4. Sprinkle fresh coriander over the top and serve.
  5. TIPS
  6. In the Punjab, tomatoes are grated to make a puree - don't be tempted to use ready-prepared tomato puree instead of fresh.
  7. The spice combinations in garam masala vary in different parts of India. In the Punjab this one which you can try making yourself is common: 5 tbsps coriander seeds, 3 tbsps cumin seeds, 2 1/2 tbsps black peppercorns, 2 1/2 black cardamom seeds, 2 in cinnamon stick, 4-5 cloves, 1/6 nutmeg. Put the coriander and the cumin into a cast-iron frying-pan over a medium heat.
  8. Stir until lightly roasted. Allow to cool. Grind with the remaining ingredients in a clean coffee grinder and store in a tightly lidded jar.
  9. This rich flavoursome dish originates in the fertile Punjab, a state now divided between India and Pakistan. There is nothing more important to a Punjabi man's diet than bread, and meals are accompanied by flat round cornbread rotis or rich, flaky pan-fried paratha layered with ghee
  10. (clarified butter).
  11. Rice is reserved for special occasions or for rice pudding, for the only food that makes a Punjabi feel he has eaten a proper meal is his bread! You of course, can serve this dish with plain boiled rice.
