Directions

  1. In a large bowl, soak rice in cold water to soak while preparing the rest of the recipe.
  2. In a small bowl, using the back of a spoon, smash into a paste the garlic, pepper, salt, curry, and turmeric. Drizzle in the soy sauce as you continue to smash. Set spice aside.
  3. Cut the duck into a dozen pieces, removing the fat and thick skin.
  4. Drain soaking rice, and set aside. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a wide pot over medium-high heat, stir in the spice paste, and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in duck pieces; cook about 10 minutes, stirring frequently until lightly browned. Pour in 2 cups water, bring to a boil, and simmer 10 minutes. Pour in remaining water and vegetable oil; return contents to boil. Add rice to pot. Water should cover the rice by 1/2 inch. Return to a boil and cook, covered tightly, 15 to 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
  5. Remove pot from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 to 10 minutes. Turn out onto serving platter, and garnish with green onions.

  • Substitution Suggestion
  • If using chicken, cut 2 pounds of meat into 1-inch chunks. The above spices even work with beef, just add 2 tablespoons of minced ginger to the paste.

very easy dish, and the flavor is wonderful. I made it with wild duck which can be a bit gamey but it came out amazing

I didn't think it was that much work but I was looking for something with a bit more flavour. If I made it again, I would add some cilantro.

Very good, even my 2 yr old loved it. Will make again, very easy. I cooked the duck the night before in the crock pot; it was easy to skin the next day. I used regular white rice.

Tough call. It turned out very delicious. When I prepared it I did not use the entire amount of soy sauce, [unsure of the exact amount to use, since it said "drizzle"], and I needed to add some Sweet Soy sauce at the end. But overall, it was very good!!
