Ducks waddling along the banks of rice fields or following the flag held by their owner (or his children) are a common sight in Bali. On festive occasions, duck is a great favorite. Spiced stuffed duck baked in banana leaves (Bebek Betutu) is one popular recipe; this curried duck dish is another. Chicken is also delicious when cooked in this way—which is essentially the Balinese equivalent of a spicy Rendang.
