Dinner meal - Kasturi Chicken Curry with plain rice and salad

Since last few days i have been too lazy to cook,so when i decided to prepare chicken curry for dinner,i thought of preparing one of the regular chicken curry which i usually prepare,after frying chicken drumsticks with the spice paste ,i asked hubby about water ratio ,sometimes i just go ahead but when he is there i ask him :-) he told me to add coconut milk or curd instead of water ,i didnt had either of the two ,so he told me to add milk ,i did the same and was truly amazed by the taste ,thought of documenting the recipe as this recipe is very simple with minimal ingredients and tastes best with rice and nan with some salad on the side.
