photo by GiddyUpGo
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 9mins
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 small duck, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 4 small waxy potatoes, peeled & cut into halves
- 1 large onion, quartered
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 3 whole dried chilies, soaked in hot water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 cup peanut oil
- 5⁄8 cup water
- Mix the turmeric with the salt and fish sauce and toss it with the duck. Put it in the fridge and let it marinade for 30 minutes.
- Put the onion, garlic and dried chilies in a food processor. Pulse until you have a smooth paste.
- Heat the oil over a hot flame and fry the potatoes until they are lightly browned on all sides. Now take them out of the oil and set them aside. Put the duck pieces into the same oil and lightly brown that, too. With a slotted spoon, take the duck out of the pan and set it aside.
- Put the onion paste into the oil and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until it turns a rich reddish brown color, which should take 15 to 20 minutes.
- Add the paprika and cook until fragrant.
- Return the duck and potatoes to the pan and add the water. Cover the pot and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. The meat should be tender.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a mother of two with another one on the way! I am married to an Englishman and we own a small business in our local area. We live in a very small town called Rough and Ready (yes there really is a place called Rough and Ready!) I am a part-time writer and full time mom. My kids were born 15 months apart and keep me so busy I barely have enough time to cook and no time at all for my other passion, horseback riding. I once had four horses but am down to two; my Arab mare Argo and old Denver. Both of them spend the vast majority of their time standing around in my back yard eating hay. I get to feed them and look at them, but until my kids are all in school (and I stop having more kids) that's about it. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
