Mix oil, Vietnamese Sweet Lemon Curry Powder, Ground Cumin Seeds, fish sauce, and soy sauce together to make paste. Rub chicken pieces thoroughly with paste and place in food storage bag to marinate in refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours. When chicken is ready, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lay sliced onion across bottom of baking sheet. Lay chicken pieces on top of onion and roast in oven until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 1 hour, 15 min. When chicken is done, start the sauce. Heat oil over medium-high heat in medium saucepan. Add vegetables and cook for a few minutes until they just start to soften. Add roasting juices from cooked chicken pan, chicken stock, coconut milk and fish sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce is reduced by about half. Pour sauce over chicken pieces when ready to serve. Garnish with cilantro.
