    You know, I honestly took this to be a non-veg recipe and was wondering why the duck in the picture did not even remotely resemble duck meat !! :)))

    I guess bombay duck is some kind of vegetable.. right?

      Mrs S Bombay Duck is a fish which you get only in Mumbai and no where else. It’s a soft fish and tastes great. You should try them once.
