Pairing drinks with the food is a common trail people often follow to maximize their dining experience. But most often people do not think about such pairing while indulging in Indian cuisine.
Thinking about what to drink with Indian food is similar to asking what kind of drinks you would like to have in European cuisine. Both have an incredible vast menu. Do not worry like everything else, it too has certain pointers that could hopefully make the decision of pairing drinks a little easy.
3 Pointers To Remember While Pauiring Drinks With Indian Food
- The first thing that you have to remember is, how spicy/hot is the food. Keep in mind not all Indian food is comparatively that spicy.

- The second thing you need to keep in mind is the basic ingredients used in the main course, whether it is fish, meat, or veggies.
