- Duck breasts - with or without skin, it doesn't really matter.
- Noodles - I'm using some rice noodles, any will do
- Some vegetables - For me, some peppers and some carrots
- 1 teaspoon Garam Masala
- 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
- 1 teaspoon Turmeric
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- Vegetable/Nut Oil - I utilized some sesame oil for frying the meat, and some groundnut oil for the stir fry
- Soy sauce
- lemon juice or lime juice
You will also need: - Frying Pan. - Wok. - Small bowl. - Couple of plates - Tray for the oven - An oven, preheated to 500F, or 250 Deg C/Gas Mark 9. Place the Garam Masala, Chili Powder, Turmeric, Cinnamon, and Paprika into the small bowl, and mix them together.
Cut up your vegetables, and ginger (the ginger needs to be in pretty tiny places), and put them to the side, you don't really have time to cut them up later, so it's a good idea to get it out of the way. Cut them to the size that you like veg in a stir fry to be (for me that's defined by how easy it is to eat it with chop sticks).
The spice is going to need to coat all of the duck breasts that you have, pour out a reasonable proportion (~half of it for two duck breasts) onto a plate. Take one of the pieces of duck, and roll both sides of it in the spices, until it's completely coated. Repeat for all of the other duck breasts.
Pour some of your chosen oil into the frying pan. Heat the pan up until the oil has just started to smoke.
Put the pieces of duck into the pan and commence to fry both sides.
This will probably take between 4 and 5 minutes, make sure to turn the pieces of duck over. The idea is to get the spices to stick to the duck, and begin to get it cooked.
When the duck's looking like this, it's probably pretty well sealed, and ready for moving to the oven. The duck's going to need to be in the oven for between 7 and 10 minutes, so it's time to start on the stir fry while it cooks.
Put the rice noodles into the wok, with the chopped veg. Add some soy sauce, and lemon juice to your personal taste (this will probably take a little experimenting, just be fairly minimal with both if you're unsure).
Stir fry the vegetables and noodles until the soy sauce looks to be fairly even, whilst allowing the vegetables to remain crunchy.
Get the duck out of the oven. Using a sharp knife slice it open down the centre horizontally. Check that the meat inside looks cooked properly, you don't want to be eating duck with a raw inside, the picture below isn't so clear, but the duck is the same fleshy pink all the way through:
