    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. To make the pomegranate paste, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz to make a purée.

    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the duck legs until browned, then transfer to a casserole dish. Add the onion, garlic and aubergine to the pan, and fry for 3-4 minutes.

    3. Dry fry the walnuts for 3-4 minutes until toasted. Place in a food processor, blitz until well ground, then add to the pan with the flour and fry for 1 minute. Stir in the stock, cinnamon stick and barberries, and bring to the boil, stirring until thickened. Add the pomegranate paste. Pour over the duck legs, cover with a lid and bake for 1½ hours.

    4. Stir in the herbs and season. Scatter with reserved barberries and serve with basmati rice.
