It's just my husband and I for the holidays so instead of doing a traditional Thanksgiving meal, we've decided to make a massive vegan Indian feast instead.
On the menu: vegetable biryani, saag aloo, chana masala, garlic naan, and either gulab jamun or halwa for dessert.
Cursory search indicates that for spicy Indian food (and it's gonna be spicy), a refreshing lager is your best bet and were it not the holidays, I'd be inclined to agree, but as it is the holidays, we'd like something a little classier.
We live in Quebec where really good wine is not hard to find and our budget is $30 max.
