how to make Nadan Tharavu Curry | Kuttanadan Duck Curry - Kerala Style

 Tharavu Curry or Duck Curry is a very popular dish of Kuttanadan in Kerala. This curry is prepared and served in all special occasions like Easter, Christmas and wedding. Love the aroma it fills the house while cooking.


This dish is a coconut based and you might end up getting a lot of fat from the skin. Thus it's skin making it more delicious. So, don't ever think of buying a skinless meat.




Moreover, the meat is cooked in its own water and fat. No extra water is been used other than the coconut milk.  Duck Curry is a must try for every non-vegetarian.

Let me know how it came out for you and if you like the recipe, do share it with others.
