Duck Curry. Duck Stew. Duck Kuzhambu. Duck Meat in Indian way.Vaathu Kari Kuzhambu in Tamil and Baathu Pulusu in Telugu.
Duck and Goose meat are very gamier, rough and with hard bones. One could get addicted to their taste quite easily. And they are also rich in cholesterol....so never over eat them....take a control!
Duck is prepared in too many different ways. I like Thai style curry preparations and American whole duck stuffed and roasted! So sometimes.....you like them in your own way....yeah the way your mommy did it...when you were kid! So today for a change I prepared it in an old fashioned way! This curry is best to go with your steamed rice! No offence one could take them with Idly or Dosa as well!
