"Oooooh yummm" "daaaaamn", my hubby said today. Yes, it is the yummiest yum you can think of. This Red Duck Curry is beyond delicious. It's not difficult to make, at all, just follow my recipe closely and try not to be creative more than what's written (will tell you stories later on)
- 1 roasted or baked duck
- 1 can 400 ml of Thai coconut cream
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 3-4 teaspoons of red curry paste
- 3.5 tablespoons of Thai fish sauce
- 8 kaffir lime leaves
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- 4 baby eggplants (or 1 large eggplant)
- 1.5 cups of fresh pineapple
- 8-10 seedless grapes, skin removed
- 10 smallest size cherry tomatoes
1) Thinly slice roasted or baked duck. If you have no time to bake a duck, you can alternatively buy 4 duck breasts, fry them skin down first, turn them upside down, add some water and cover it. Keep on low fire until cooked.
2) Cut eggplant and pineapple into bite size pieces (keep them separately). Prepare cherry tomatoes. tear 5 kaffir lime leaves into pieces (make sure to remove the stem). Thinly slice one lime leaf for garnish. Peel the grapes (ensure they are seedless).
3) READY??? Now follow me closely and you will see miracles happen in your wok!
Pour coconut cream into a wok and simmer for about 3 minutes. Make sure to stir it all the time. Add coconut milk and simmer for another 3 minutes. Add 3.5 tablespoons of fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1 tea spoon of salt, 3 teaspoons of red curry paste and kaffir lime leaves. Mix all well and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Taste it- if you want more spice, add another teaspoon of curry paste.
4) Add duck and eggplant. Cook for 5-6 minutes. Then add pineapple and cherry tomatoes and simmer for another 2 minutes. Turn off the cooker. Add grapes. Wasn't it easy? Now transfer your curry into a serving dish, garnish with sliced lime leaf and decorate with a couple of lime leafs.
Serve it with Thai or jasmine rice.
Get ready to hear "oh Gosh, ohhhh yuuummmm" :)))
