Rangoon Roast Duck (Batek Roast) Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp sesame oil

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp chopped ginger

2 tbsp chopped garlic

2 tbsp malt vinegar

2 medium onions, diced

a few black peppercorns

a few coriander seeds

1 level tsp cumin seeds

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 whole duck, 1.6-1.8kg

a little water

2 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)

Method :

Combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and vinegar in a large bowl. Place the duck in the bowl. Coat with the marinade and allow to marinate at room temperature for 1-2 hours. Preheat the oven to 475-500F (Gas 9-10). Place the onion, black peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds and tomatoes in a roasting pan. Lay the duck on top and roast in the oven for 45-50 minutes until done, basting frequently with the dripping fat. When cooked, remove the duck from the pan. Skim off the fat, strain the remaining liquid and pour into a small saucepan. Bring to the boil. Mix a little water with the cornflour to make a thin paste. Add to the boiling liquid and whisk until the sauce thickens. It should be smooth and slightly thick. Serve the duck hot, accompanined by the sauce and some crusty bread.

This multinational recipe comes from the Rangoon Club, a colonial club built for the British 'gentry'. The chefs were great innovators, especially when it came to fusing cuisines. In this recipe, we find Indian, Chinese and Western influences.

Serves 4 - 6
