Phead = Spicy; Ped = Duck; Yang = Roast Roasted duck with red curry is a meal the Thai people usually have only on special occasions. You can find fresh lychee at any asian market and many regular markets. If you cannot find it you can use either canned lychee or small grapes instead. This will make your curry taste a bit more sour but still delicious.
