  1. Place the Duck Breasts skin side down into a dry pan on medium to high heat. Cook until the skin is crispy (but not burnt) then turn over and cook for another minute or so. You want the duck breasts to be pink when sliced.
  2. Remove duck breasts from pan & put to one side.
  3. Whilst cooking the duck breasts, add the oil into a separate wok or pan over medium heat
  4. Add the Red Curry Paste & fry lightly for a minute or so to release the aromas.
  5. Add about 100ml of the Coconut Milk and stir heating gently for a couple of minutes.
  6. Add the remaining coconut milk and bring to the boil.
  7. Add the Thai Apple Aubergines, then add Kaffir Lime Leaves. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  8. Add the Palm Sugar, Lychees, Pineapple Chunks & Thai Basil Leaves and cook gently for another 5 minutes or until heated through.
  9. Finally add the duck, the Fish Sauce and Cherry Tomatoes and heat for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  10. Serve immediately with steamed Jasmine rice & add more Thai Basil as desired. We use Royal Umbrella brand Thai Hom Mali Rice which is a lovely fragrant rice.
