MAKE IT YOURS: This can easily be turned into a vegetarian curry by omitting the duck — add extra vegetables or some fried tofu, if desired.

TOP TIP: If you don’t want to roast a whole duck before making this curry, simply buy a pack of two prepared confit duck legs, cook them according to package instructions and shred the meat from the bones
