   * Small Thai “eggplants” belongs to the eggplant family, but doesn't
   resemble any eggplants found here in the US.  These are about the
   size of large green peas, and look pretty much the same.  Regular
   green peas may be used as substitute.
   Put the ingredients for the red curry paste into a mortar and pound
   until well mixed into a paste.  NOTE: You may use commercially
   available paste, if available.  Adjust the amount to taste.
   Debone the roast duck, and cut up the meat into bite-size rectangular
   pieces (leaving the skin on).  Cut the neck and wing into pieces.
   Place the coconut milk in a large saucepan and heat till boiling.  Add
   duck pieces and cook till tender.  Put the coconut cream into a frying
   pan, add red curry paste.  Heat over fairly high heat, stiring
   constantly, till all the paste have mixed in and thoroughly heated.
   Add Kaffir Lime leaves, fish sauce (to taste), coconut sugar, and
   continue to heat (keep stiring all the time to prevent burning) until
   red oil starts to form on the surface of the “sauce”.
   Add the “sauce” to the saucepan of duck and coconut milk, and bring
   back to a boil.  Add all remaining ingredients except the basils,
   which is to be added when the curry starts to boil.  Remove from heat
   and serve with plain boiled white rice.
