wine/beer pairing for chicken tikka masala?

I'm making a special birthday dinner for a friend - chicken tikka masala - and would love some recommendations for wines and beers that would be a good complement. predominant spices are cumin/coriander/cardamom (in the garam masala mix), cumin/coriander/cayenne (as a rub), and garlic/ginger/serrano (as part of the masala sauce). thanks 'hounds.

Where to buy acorn meal?

I recently harvested and processed valley oak acorns up here in Sonoma County. They were quite mild and didn't require several rounds of leaching. I ground the acorns into a really beautiful meal with a hand grinder and used it in a gingerbread recipe - just substituted it for half the flour.

Absolutely delicious and extremely satisfying to see the process through.
