About this recipe: Fab spicy, sour and sweet duck curry. This is a recipe I am rather proud of. One of my favourite Thai restaurants in Australia made a fab duck curry and when I moved to the UK I really wanted to reproduce it. After several attempts and failures I think I have now got this right. It was a great challenge trying to 'guess the ingredients'. Hope you like it.
Tamarind water is available in Asian Supermarkets. If you cannot get hold of this a suitable substitute would be mixing together 4 tablespoons of lime juice with 4 tablespoons brown sugar.
Snake beans are also called Chinese long bean or yardlong bean. You can find them at some Asian or oriental markets, but regular green beans work just as well.
This goes well as part of a Thai banquet dinner. I usually make Thai fish cakes and chicken satay for starters, then serve the duck curry with a Thai green chicken curry.
