Preheat the slow cooker to an auto or low setting.
Heat a large heavy bottomed frying pan over a high heat. Score the skin of the duck breasts with a knife at 2cm intervals. Add the duck breasts to the hot frying pan, skin side down and cook for 6 to 8 minutes until the skin has turned golden brown. Flip over and cook the other side for 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Add the oil to the frying pan and add the onions and garlic, cook for a few minutes until soft. Stir in the ginger, carrots, chilli and tomato purée and cook and stir for a further 5 minutes. Add the stock and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Add all of the spices and seasoning. Remove from the heat and transfer to the slow cooker. Add the duck breasts.
Cook on auto or low setting for 7 to 8 hours. Prior to serving, remove the duck and shred the meat, add back into the curry for the last 10 minutes.
