Grilled Chicken Curry / Leftover recipes

After posting my creamy sandwich "Grilled chicken & Apple Sandwich" using leftover grilled chicken, this is my second recipe using the same potato stuffed grilled chicken. This is a delicious one pot gravy prepared using pressure cooker and also an excellent side dish for Dosa, Idly and Roti. Personally, I served it with dosa n hot rice and it tasted heavenly. As I have used the leftover dish for this curry, I have included the grilled potatoes too but it can also be omitted or added into the curry using fresh cubed potatoes. Poached eggs makes the dish more exotic while serving and also enhances the flavor and taste.
