Stuff the duck with 3/4 of the onion-fruit filling and close the opening with small wooden skewers. In a roasting pan with a lid, saute the duck until golden brown all over, cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes.

Remove the duck from the pan, transfer to a plate and keep warm in a low oven.

In a skillet, saute the rice until coated, then transfer to the roasting pan the duck cooked in. Add the saffron and the rest of the filling and the hot water, cover and cook over low heat until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes.

6.

Return the duck to the pan and cook 10 minutes utnil piping hot.
