How to Make Savoury Roast Duck

  • Rub the salt and pepper well into the duck.
  • Heat oil in a big pan and add the whole duck.
  • Fry on high heat for about 3 minutes, turning on all sides till it changes colour.
  • Add all the other ingredients, 4 glasses of water and simmer till tender.
  • Strain away any excess soup and keep aside.
  • Add 2 tbsp of oil or ghee and continue to simmer on low heat till the duck is nicely brown all over and the potatoes are nicely roasted.
  • Slice and arrange on a serving platter.
  • Pour the remaining soup back into the vessel and mix in 2 tbsp of flour. Cook till the gravy thickens, stirring well.
  • Spoon this gravy on top of the slices of the duck roast.
  • Pour the remaining gravy on the side of the platter along with the roast potatoes.
  • Alternatively, the duck could be cooked in a pressure cooker till soft and then browned in a pan.
