Coq au Vin/Anglo Indian Rooster Curry

Coq au vin is a traditional French recipe of chicken/rooster cooked or braised in red wine. The first time I read about this recipe was from Julie Child's cook book. Recently I found this recipe which is an Anglo Indian version of Coq au Vin. I tried this Indian version and instantly fell in love with the recipe.This recipe is adapted from here
