3 tablespoons chopped red onion

3 tablespoons chopped garlic

1 tablespoon chopped galangal

2 tablespoons chopped lemongrass

2 tablespoons chopped kaffir lime rind

1 coriander root

1/2 tablespoon ground cumin powder

1 tablespoon ground coriander powder

1 tablespoon shrimp paste

3 fresh long red chiles

1 cup cooking oil

Red Duck Curry:

2 tablespoons cooking oil

4 tablespoons red curry paste

1 1/2 cups coconut milk

10 ounces boneless roasted duck, cut into bite-sized pieces

4 ounces apple eggplants

4 ounces pea eggplants

10 sweet Kris tomatoes, roughly chopped

4 pineapples, cut into chunks

4 lychees, fresh or canned

2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 tablespoon sugar

1 long red chili

1 1/2 ounces sweet basil leaves

6 kaffir lime leaves

Steamed jasmine rice, for serving, optional

Directions

  1. To prepare the Red Curry Paste:
  2. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients. Add a splash of water to help it blend easily. Blend until well mixed to a fine texture. Cook the paste in the oil until the paste is well cooked, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Preparation for Red Duck Curry:
  4. Into a large saucepan over medium heat, add cooking oil and red curry paste and stir well. Add half of the coconut milk and gently stir. Add the duck, apple eggplant, pea eggplant, tomatoes, pineapple, and lychee. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered until vegetables are tender. Add the fish sauce and sugar to desired sweetness. Remove from heat and add the chili, basil, kaffir lime leaves and serve.
