Black sesame chicken fry


by: Indrani

Sesame seeds have great nutritional benefits.The paste of sesame seed also known as Tahini paste is used in many Arabian dishes.But the black variety yields the best quality of oil and is also best suited for medicinal purposes. The Black sesame seeds contain higher levels of antioxidants than brown as is known to have anti aging properties.It is largely used in Ayurveda and Chinese food. Today I am going to present a Chicken recipe which is rare and has a strong flavor where Black sesame seeds is the main ingredient. The color of the paste is grayish black,so to improve color kashmiri chilly powder is used. Dates and onions are added to add some sweetness to the dish. The dish came out very well and is appreciated by my neighbors ,family members and even my daughter who is a very choosy eater and don't like spicy food finished her tiff-in when I packed the same chicken in the sandwich. So.So I want you to try the dish and give me your valuable comments.
