Adjust the amount of curry to your personal taste.

Adjust the amount of thickening needed to suit dish - can also use cornflour and water for thickening.

I have made this with chicken breasts but the flavour is much nicer with the chicken cooked on the bone. Remove the skin from the drumsticks if you would like a healthier version.
