Make a paste with a little flour and water, then stir it slowly into the pot liquid to thicken it a little. Cut the tortillas into strips about 1/2 inch wide. Roll the strips and drop them into the pot. Simmer for a few minutes, then add the sliced egg. Using a ladle, put some of the gravy over the ducks, then put the vegetables and dumplings around the sides. If you've got some spicy pickled peaches or crab apples, add a few of them to the dish.
