I got this recipe from a cookbook “Wonderful Ways to Cook Curries” I paid 50c for the book in a thrift shop and don’t plan to keep the poor old thing. I haven’t made this recipe, but we eat a lot of curries and I know I will. Remember an Australian tablespoon is 4 teaspoons.

  2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and sauté the onions and garlic until golden brown.
  3. Stir in the remaining one teaspoon of turmeric and the rest of the spices. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the tomatoes and water and bring to the boil.
  5. Add the duck pieces, cover and cook over a low heat until the duck is tender (about 1 hour).
  6. Just before serving, add the salt and lemon juice.
