Curry duck, yummy! The complete recipe

Dockers Crew chef cooks up a storm at Iron Pot Curry Duck Cookout in south Trinidad. A young lady at the event enjoys the delicious “curry duck” that Trinbagonians can’t resist. The curried duck is usually full of salty and spicy flavours that make eaters crave for more. “Curry duck” may be eaten with a roti dish combined of dhalpuri, channa, potato, pumpkin, mango, bodi, and bhaji. Some may eat it with dumplings. Others may serve it as “cutters” when liming and drinking alcohol. Have it any way you like, it’s yummy!
