8 great drinks to pair with dal
Dal recipes obviously vary so you’ll need to experiment!
I mean, come on, this is Bristol. Let’s celebrate our regional drink. Besides it goes REALLY well with gently spiced food like dal

Not as well known as Alsace’s other grape varieties such as riesling and gewürztraminer but I really like its refreshingly fruity character with a dal

Or mango lassi if you prefer but I like salted with dal. There’s a nice recipe here.
Not a huge fan myself but it would definitely work. My local Indian restaurant, Thali does a Arrack Sour cocktail with Ceylon arrack shaken with coconut water, lime and egg white which would totally hit the spot.
