Chicken and Potatoes in Spicy Coconut milk curry

I had marinated some chicken tenders and frozen away half of them, to use later. I was wondering what to do with those.I sometimes feel the 'roasting-grinding' part of the masala for the curries is too tedious.Wanted a semi thick spicy and delicious curry,but without the hard work :) This one turned out perfect!! Spicy coconutty curry with tender pieces of chicken and potato cubes. Made a delicious weekend meal!

1.5 cups Chicken tender cut into large cubes
1 large potato cut into large cubes
1 can coconut milk
1/2 onion chopped
4 tsp Yogurt
2 tsp Chicken curry masala powder (store bought)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1-2 tsp red chili powder
2-3 Dried red chilies
few curry leaves

1) Marinate the chicken pieces in in yogurt, red chili powder,salt and chicken curry masala for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
2) Heat some oil, add the chopped onion fry till translucent. Add the ginger garlic paste, dried red chilies and curry leaves. Add the potato cubes and saute. Cover for few mins till potatoes brown a little.Add the chicken and saute for few more mins.
