Everyones favourite food show, Channel 4's Come Dine With Me have written a great article on everyday foods that are perfectly complemented by Hardys wine.
Some of the recipes are absolutely great and are a must try. Our personal favourite is the 'King Prawn Curry' with Hardy's Stamp of Australia Grenache Shiraz Rose. Even we were pleasantly surprised at how well the recommendation worked, normally drinking the Shiraz Rose simply as a casual wine rather than a dining wine, but now has certainly changed our minds.
How to make prawn curry
1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the cumin seeds, ginger, garlic and onions for 5 minutes until the onion is softened, stirring regularly.
2. Stir in the tomatoes and chillies and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add the garam masala and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir in the tomato puree and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes, stirring regularly.
3. While the sauce is simmering, heat the remaining oil in a small frying pan and fry the prawns over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes until pink and cooked through. Toss into the pan with the tomato sauce and bubble for a few seconds. Serve.
