The idea for this recipe came to me while going through a household magazine which had the recipe of duck meat. I gave the dish a slight twist to come up with this idea of a combo dish of the duck meat with spiced beaten rice. The duck meat is really so flavorful and juicy you can’t put it down.

Spicy Beaten Rice

Take a pan and add all the tempering ingredients. Now add the chopped onions and chilies and fry for two-three minutes. Next, add ginger-garlic paste and the marinated duck. Fry for ten minutes and add the spices, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, mutton masala,garam masala, and fry. Next, add the tomato puree. Give everything a good mix and fry finally for four minutes before adding water. You need not add too much of oil in this recipe as on frying the duck meat gives out a lot of oil on its own.

Step 3

DSC02466 (1).jpgNow add enough water and pressure cook the meat or alternately cook it in a pan but the second option would be more time-consuming. On cooking it in a cooker the dish would be ready after two-three whistles or you may cook it till done.

Our Sauteed Duck is ready. Serve it with vegetable biryani, peas pulao or breads of your choice apart from serving it in the way as given here.

Garnish with salted and semi-fried capsicum and raisins. You may though garnish it according to your wish.

Serve it with plain or tempered beaten rice or poha.

Now add the spices, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, homemade garam masala, coriander powder and a pinch of sugar and fry everything well before adding the washed and squeezed beaten rice. Saute everything well for three minutes. Lastly, add the dry mango powder and some lemon juice. You may pour one spoonful of ghee for better taste.

Our Spicy Beaten Rice is done. Garnish it with grated fresh coconut and cilantro. It can be had as an accompaniment or completely as one proper dish with duck stew or potato-coconut curry.
