Thai Kaeng Phed Ped Yang (Thai Roasted Duck in Red Curry) Recipe-

  1. If your duck is not yet roasted, roast it to juicy, cooked-through perfection, then allow it to cool enough to cut the meat into 1” strips (leave the skins on!) before starting the next steps.
  2. Over medium-low heat, heat up the vegetable oil in a large cooking pot, then add in the red curry paste, and gently cook until nice and fragrant.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium-high, and add in the coconut milk, stir well, and then bring the mixture up to a boil.
  4. Now add in the chicken stock, eggplants, rambutans, minced chilis, tomatoes, and kaffir lime leaves. Stir the mixture together well, and then turn the heat back down to medium-low.
  5. Season the mixture with salt, fish sauce and sugar, again mixing and blending together well.
  6. Now into the pot goes the sliced roasted duck. Bring the ingredients to a boil, and stir just gently—you don’t want the duck skin to get loosened from the meat.
  7. After a few minutes, add fresh basil and cook for just one more minute, then take your pot of Kaeng Phed Ped Yang off the burner.
  8. Thai Kaeng Phed Ped Yang is traditionally (and best) served over freshly steamed jasmine rice or boiled somen noodles.

  1. I’ve seen a recipe called “Dang Phed Pet Young” that looks a whole like this one. Are they the same, just slightly varied? Sure looks yummy!

    • Barb, yes, they are the same. The name varies slightly, as different dialects spell the pronounciation differently. Also, there are various versions of this dish, but the duck and curry are basic and constant in all versions I have seen. And you are right, this dish is very yummy!

  2. Very interesting take on a Thai dish, one I’ve not seen before, but looks quite tasty. Appreciate the links, some of those ingredients are hard to come by here in the Midwest.
