Mock Duck Curry

I figured the other day that I’d not really done a half decent mock meat recipe on this blog. One of my favourite mock meats is duck. This is mainly because you can buy it outside of specialty stores and I have absolutely no idea what duck tastes like. I’d say that this tastes like a very savory braised tofu, which is great! Here’s my enthusiasm for mock duck:

Just kidding. πŸ˜‰ I can show my appreciation on a far larger scale!

So here’s your ingredients list:

  • Enough basmati rice to feed two people.
  • A teaspoon of dried chili flakes.
  • Two cans of mock duck. (I picked these up from Holland & Barrett.)
  • Two tablespoons of mild curry powder.
  • A sprinkle of sea salt.
  • One tin of coconut milk.
  • 3 cloves of garlic.
  • A tablespoon of vegan butter. (I used Vitalite.)
  • Two red onions.
  • Two large potatoes. (Which you can see in the picture, but I only used one in the end.)

Method:

Place the butter, onion and garlic in a warm pan. Mix until butter has melted and then turn the heat down to it’s lowest setting.

Add the chili, curry powder and salt and stir again.

Dice your potato and add that in, ensuring that it gets fully covered in the spices.

Now add the mock duck and coconut milk. If you have never cooked with mock duck before, you’ll notice it comes out of the tin looking like this:

Just chop it up into smaller chunks and chuck it straight in.

After about 20 minutes simmering on a low heat with the occasional stir, get your basmati rice on.

You’ll notice that the colour of the source will begin to change and it will begin to thicken. This is absolutely intentional. Nobody likes a watery curry do they?

After another 10 minutes your rice should be done, so drain it and serve with some fresh parsley and of course the curry, which by now has been slowly infusing for around 30 minutes.

Believe me this dish is so simple to prepare considering for the layer upon layer of flavour you get at the end of it. I hope you enjoy and please remember to share far and wide so Queer Vegan can get some exposure!

Love and light! πŸ˜€

  1. NOW I have to try the Mock Duck! As I eat fresh duck on a regular basis (I live in an area where every signal restaurant has duck on the menu) I have to know what “mock duck” tastes like. I’ll use you recipe, which sounds really good.

      • Well I’m back with my report on Mock duck! I will start with the comparison that Mock duck is to duck as Spam is to ham. But that is not to say mock duck is awful! Its just different. I for one get my annual craving for fried Spam, served on a fresh baguette with home made mayo. (OK I’m weird). So using your recipe I made the mock duck and it was really good. (I doctored it a bit for personal taste). I do however recommend trying the real thing, but mock duck deserves its place on the shelves along with Spam! God bless a product with no expiration date! Again, thank you for introducing me to a product I never new existed. πŸ™‚

  2. Well I’m glad you enjoyed it. How did you modify the recipe?

    Also although I appreciate your feedback, I won’t be trying a duck’s flesh because I am vegan. I believe that no animal should suffer unnecessarily.
