Ciroc Chicken Curry

This chicken curry has an interesting story. A good friend of mine said he will make good chicken curry and invited us for lunch. The night before the lunch we were a little intoxicated  and  he ended up marinating the chicken with a cup of Vodka with other ingredients. The next day he cooked that ciroc soaked chicken and I was wondering how it was gonna come out. But it came out really really delicious and we were all surprised. Thanks to Rakesh for the cool new recipe!!
