Sauteed Duck With Spicy Beaten Rice


Hello and welcome dear friends to my corner again. Today I’ll be sharing a delectable, delicious and a very special, creative idea of Sauteed Duck With Spicy Beaten Rice. 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. And the spiced beaten rice here really does the tango. A really mouthwatering idea which is a hit one according to me. So let’s start with the recipe—

Step 1

Sauteed Duck

To make the sauteed duck, wash and rub turmeric and salt in it. Keep aside. Chop the onions and green chilies roughly.

Step 2

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
