1 cup tomatoes diced in small pieces
1 tea spoon salt
1 tea spoon curry powder (optional)
1/2 tea spoon crushed red pepper
4 table spoons oil or margarine
4 large bananas
2 quarts of water



In a 6-quart Dutch oven or baking dish:
Sauté: 1 cup ONIONS finely chopped, and
1 cup TOMATOES in small dice, with
1 tsp. SALT
1 tsp. CURRY POWDER (optional)
1/2 tsp. CRUSHED RED PEPPER (optional) in
4 Tbs. OIL or MARGARINE until soft.
Add 1 6-lb. DUCKLING, cut up into about 12 pieces.
Sauté the duckling lightly for 2 or 3 minutes.

Duckling is a great delicacy in Tanzania and is usually served when there are special guests. The same recipe is used for other meats and is particularly good with veal and chicken. Accompaniments are cooked bananas (a must), rice, potatoes, cassava and Ugali made with white cornmeal.
