Hi Sarah,
bumped into your blog accidentally through someoneelse's blog; and thankfully I discovered I should say! you've got a wonderful collection of delicious recipes;
was going through some of my favourite labels, hummmm, your duck curry looks absolutely delicious;

Though I'm not from "kuttanadan", (from Pondicherry rather), I love to eat duck curry; Though so many of them are saying they're going to replace it with chicken, I'm sure they simply can't get the same taste; let me say they don't know what they're missing :) :)
