Bebek Lado Hijau

Serve: 10 Person

Tidak semua orang bisa membuat bebek lado hijau karena kalau salah mengolah, bebek beresiko bau amis saat disajikan.

  • 1 whole duck
  • Cooking oil

Spice Paste

  • 25 shallots
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 18 green chilies
  • 3 candlenuts
  • 1 thumb-sized piece turmeric
  • 1 thumb-sized piece ginger
  • 1 thumb-sized piece galangal
  • ½ turmeric leaf
  • 1 lemongrass stalk
  • ½ teaspoon salt

The cooking process is also quite detailed, not everyone is able to make this dish properly. If there is a misstep anywhere in the process, the duck will smell gamey when served. At home, only my mother can cook this well – Felicia Imansyah


  1. Pluck the feathers from a freshly slaughtered duck. Then singe the plucked duck over an open flame (top of stove) until the fat begins to melt and the skin turns golden brown. This will enable the easy removal of the pin feathers and eliminate the gamey or fishy smell characteristic of duck meat.
  2. Rinse the duck in water and cut into 10-12 pieces. Wash the cut pieces thoroughly. Set aside.
  3. Slice 12 shallots and grind the rest finely with the garlic. Add salt and green chilies and grind them into the mixture, before adding the candlenuts, turmeric, ginger, and galangal. Grind all ingredients together into a smooth paste.
  4. Fry sliced shallots until golden brown. Add spice paste, turmeric leaf, and lemongrass. Cook until all ingredients are combined, fragrant, and separated from the oil. Remove from heat.
  5. Coat the duck with the fried resulting spice mixture. Cook on low heat until the duck releases moisture. Add water to your liking. cook until duck is tender. Serve.

Tips & Trik

  • Bersihkan bebek dari bulu-bulunya dengan membakarnya di atas kompor sampai berwarna kuning kecokelatan dan minyaknya menetes. Cara ini juga dapat menghilangkan bau amis bebek.
  • Pilih cabai hijau keriting yang kering. Jangan memakai cabai hijau besar karena banyak mengandung air. Jika masih kurang pedas, gunakan merica.
  • Bawang merah dan daun kunyit bisa meredam aroma tidak enak pada unggas. Bumbu ini juga memiliki aroma yang harum sehingga membuat masakan enak.
