This recipe for tandoori chicken was provided by Jo Cooks and it can be completed in 65 minutes. 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 Schmitt Sohne Relax Riesling with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 9 dollars per bottle.. Unfortunately, it isn't a very popular recipe right now, but hopefully that will change soon!
