Hi Mona,this is the traditional preparation and so u need to add the small onion only. The roast will be sweetish if you add big onions. This is an excellent recipie dear manju sudev. you have done a good job. Keep it up.


I really loved this. I was looking for a traditional preparation. Thank you


Is it really black in colour??? How can people eat something in black coulr? I tried this with chicken . too much of masalas.


This was my first experiment with duck. The roast was very tasty though it took lot of time to clean and cook ! It thought it is as easy as cooking chicken. I had it with bread,Did not get time to cook anything else :))))
