Jeera Chicken Roast

After peppercorns, i just love the flavour of jeera powder in my dishes..i do often jeera rice whenever i bored of making out usual pulao r is one of my easy preparation of chicken fry with jeera powder..this chicken roast is as simple as like pepper chicken fry, i follow the same as my mom do for pepper chicken fry, but instead of roasting fresh peppercorns i will roast black cumins and prepare this flavouful dish.. We know very well that cumin seeds have traditionally been noted to be of benefit to the digestive system..The health benefits of cumin include digestion, piles, insomnia, respiratory disorders, asthma, bronchitis, common cold, lactation, anemia, skin disorders, boils, immunity, and cancer.The essential oils present in cumin act as disinfectants and help fight viral infections which cause common cold. Cumin also does not let cough formation in the respiratory system as it is supposed to be hot and dries up the excess mucus. Cumin is rich in iron and has considerable amount of vitamin-C, which are essential for a good immunity and keeps infections away. Cumins seeds are very used in our Indian cooking since long ago, they are very much used in ayurvedic medicines as well as home prepared medicines which our grandma's specials..Coming to this chicken fry, its quite a simple, delicious and flavourful roast, goes awesome as side dish for any sort of rice dishes, also for rotis & parathas..This jeera chicken roast goes to Viki's The Potluck-Chicken Event..

2cups Chicken pieces
1/2cup Onion (chopped)
2nos Tomatoes(chopped)
1tsp Garlic paste
1tsp Ginger paste
1/2tsp Fennel seed powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Pepper powder
2tsp Cumin powder (roasted n powdered)
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds

Heat enough oil and add the cumin seeds, let them splutters.. add the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, ginger paste, garlic paste and stir everything for a while until the onions turns transculent and raw smells disappears, add the chicken pieces with enough salt and stir for a add the fennel seed powder, garam masala powder, redchilly powder, pepper powder, roasted cumin powder and stir again, cook in simmer with lid closed and stir occasionally, mostly the chicken pieces will leave some water else u can add water to cook the chicken pieces...
