Ok, so here it is, my curried duck Trinidad style recipe. I'm not going to lie this one could be lethal. This recipe will produce a really great curry for you, it is one of my favourites. The best bit about it is that if you are looking for credit crunch munch, and regularly look for advice online and at Lovemoney.com (http://www.lovemoney.com/), you will be pleased to know you won't have to blow the budget with this one. You'll get a yummy curry that will blow your head off instead.
I have set the recipe out in the clearest way possible, it has everything you need to know from the level of spiciness to the number of servings. You don't have to be the best cook in the world or the most experienced to be able to pull this off. I believe any curry fan can create this and will be proud once they are eating their meaty masterpiece.

|Notes||The duck can be finished with a curry sauce to be served with rice or be cooked dry without a gravy to serve as a finger food. If allowed to cook dry add 2 teaspoons of roasted ground geera 1 minute before turning off the stove for an additional aromatic geera flavour.
If serving as a finger food it goes down best with cold beer.
A hot pepper saucce can be made by combining lime juice, with equal portions of: chopped peppers, chopped cubed carrots, chopped carili or bitter gourd, chopped onions.
This side dish appetizer is called by trinidadians , a "mother in law". The lime juice brings out the zing in the pepper.
