    1. 1
      Prick the duck skin, trying not to hit the meat. (The fat layer is usually about 1/4 inch thick.).
    2. 2
      Place the coriander, half the ground cardamom, and half the ground cumin in a pot fitted with a rack.
    3. 3
      Add water to the base of the rack. Place the duck on the rack, cover the pot, and turn the heat to high.
    4. 4
      Steam for about 45 minutes, adding boiling water as needed.
    5. 5
      Remove the duck, cool slightly, and cut into servings.
    6. 6
      In a large bowl, mix together the remaining cardamom and cumin with the garlic, ginger, cayenne, paprika, and yogurt. Add the duck and marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, cook the lentils in a medium sauce pan with the turmeric and water, stirring occasionally until most of the water is absorbed and lentils are tender. This should take about 45 minutes.
    8. 8
      Mash some of the lentils with a potato masher or fork until the mixture is slightly creamy.
    9. 9
      About 30 minutes before serving, preheat the broiler and place the duck pieces, skin side down, on a broiling pan. Reheat the lentils.
    10. 10
      Broil the duck about 4-6 inches from the source of heat until browned. Turn over and brown the other side.
    11. 11
      Spoon lentils onto a plate, top with duck, garnish with cilantro, and serve.
