Mandaean Spiced Duck

Fingers holding knife carving Mandaean Duck

Duck or besha  is a favourite of the Mandaean community.  They cook it in a way that is quite different to other nations, even the Iraqis and it is eaten sometimes several times a week.  This method of boiling the duck in spices and dried limes provides a rich tangy soup to start a meal.
