Chicken Sukka /Dry With Vegetables and Nuts

This is our family favourite..We love this with Breads/Rotis.Its just like the Stuffed Chicken  Masala we make with giblets and chicken liver but here we add the green masala boiled chicken which is then shredded and then tossed with the vegetables.If you want to avoid chicken you could ,it still taste nice with the veggies and croutons and the nuts make it even more tasty.
Though the list of ingredients is too big but believe me its really mouthwatering.
