I have discussed different ways of cooking chicken from which some of the most loved ones are 

Chicken Shashlik with Sauce and Mughlai chicken. Today I am going to discuss with u another variety that is, Cumin (Zeera chicken). Bit astonished? What kinda way it is to cook. Don't worry, same way I felt when I heard first about it. But believe me it comes out to be really tasty! U must try it :) The spicy zeera chicken brings in it the unique traditional flavor. The pieces of chicken cooked in cumin seeds & yogurt goes so well :)

And here u go with the spicy, aromatic & flavorful Cumin chicken recipe, with finger licking results :)
