Tharavu Stew With Idiyappam (duck Stew With Idiyappam)
String Hoppers also known as Idiyappam is a Kerala breakfast dish often had with milk and sugar or a stew. Most popular stews served with Idiyappam are Egg stew, Chicken stew, Veg stew and Mutton stew. This is my mother's favourite Duck stew that she often serves for festive occasions. Having had it for Easter recently I thought of sharing it here. Unlike the traditional stews, this stew uses milk and not coconut milk. It also cooks the duck after it is marinated with pepper and ground ginger and garlic. Mom believes this takes away the raw smell of duck which is unbearable to people at times.
